Notes

  • Dedication: Dedicated to all Artists, acknowledging their dedication and obsession with their art and life's work, and with the frustration of finding an appreciative, enthusiastic public. The world goes round well enough without us who are redundant and ridiculous in the Age of Electronic Entertainment.
  • Author's note: Definitions. Found objects are objects that are found. They are not necessarily lost, and many wait only our finding them. Here are a few of the objects I've found, and into poetry finely ground.
