Found Poem and Chiasmus

What the heck is this? Jump down to find out.


 Today’s Poetic Mission:

For today’s assignment, We had to use chiasmus and found poetry. A found poem is just what it sounds like. You collage a bunch of words, phrases, stanzas–whatever–cut out from other sources to make a poem. Chiasmus involves repeating a word or phrase in a different order.

Not sure I hit that second mark. I did repeat glass. I’m not sure I care if I hit that second mark but I really like the result. I collaged together pieces of other collages I’ve made in the past to illustrate a poem. Let me know if you think this turned out as cool as I think it did. Talk about mixed media, the collages pictured above use everything from oil paint to charcoal to photographs.
