A Found Poem from Spam


Ancient attire
or modern garments? Hermes
handbags are one thing
you'll desire if you'd like
to be more self-confident.

The spam filter for blog comments catches a lot of garbled, mostly uninteresting stuff about various prescription medications, but now and then, something more unique comes through. I turned one long comment into the little poem above.

Though I'd hoped to write at least a tiny poem every day in November, I haven't done that! But I've definitely done some poetry-writing this month, which isn't the case every month.

This is good tongue in cheek but accurate. In fact, I had to read it twice. Glad to hear you are doing or did a vintage postcard book. Someone was talking about your collage work the other day, I hope you are still creating. Best, Cindy in Baltimore.

Thanks, Cindy. I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my blog. I'll try to post a new collage soon! There are some links to poems from my postcard book on the "poems" page at
