A Message (Badge Book 2015 “As Advertised” Found Poem)

Published April 15, 2015 by kdorholt

For the “As Advertised” Found Poem, we were to find a community bulletin board and write down words and phrases from posted messages and write a poem using the words and phrases. I used the bulletin board in the lobby of the Brookfield Library.

It’s all elementary,
of no importance,
armchair travel,
first-rate madness!
Talking about
elder care and aging parents . . .
planning a storied life  . . .
or the patio vegetable garden . . .
attending classes in
food therapy and fitness . . .

The rest of us
need to know
where to go for
a new understanding . . .
to experience
great lives.
Do you know,
who is available
to teach us this?
Please, leave a message.

Words from Brookfield Public Library (Brookfield, WI) entryway bulletin board, 11 April 2015.
