Found Poem, by J.I. Kleinberg

J.I. Kleinberg - I FOUND MY HEART - 96dpi

A visual poem created from an ongoing series of collages (1900+) built from phrases created unintentionally through the accident of magazine page design. Each contiguous fragment of text (roughly the equivalent of a poetic line) is entirely removed from its original sense and syntax. The text is not altered (except for the occasional deletion of prefixes, suffixes, or punctuation) and includes no attributable phrases. The lines of each collage are, in most cases, sourced from different magazines.

Artist, poet, and freelance writer, J.I. Kleinberg is a prolific paper-tearer and Pushcart nominee. Her found poems have appeared in Diagram, Dusie, Entropy, Otoliths, What Rough Beast, The Tishman Review, and elsewhere. She lives in Bellingham, Washington, and posts frequently at thepoetrydepartment.wordpress.com.
