I made these for a swap on another site. They all feel a little melancholy to me. I think a lot of 2020 was melancholy These are all found poetry where I pieced together text from different books. They don’t rhyme in the typical poetic melody but they are poetic in an abstract way.
“Dreadful Exit” September 2020 - Masterboard background and elements, sticker, metal embellishments, and text. Poem reads “There is an exit / which leads on to / a dreadful fate”
“Reconstruction Interrupted” September 2020 - Masterboard background, black paper with silver ink, stickers, and text. Poem reads “many will have / schemes of reconstruction / sadly interrupted / constantly haunted”
“Inward Satisfaction” October 2020 - Masterboard background, scrapbook paper, stickers (flat and dimensional), and text. Poem reads “staring eyes, gazing down / whisper quiet / inward satisfaction”
“Longing to Belong” October 2020 - Masterboard background, stickers, and text with some blacked out. Poem reads “fear had kept her from turning / it was in front of her eyes, / She thought she was more / than she was / She did not belong here.”
Thanks for looking and reading
