The Ultimate Found Poem

The f.p. or object trouvé is
the presentation of something ‘found’
in the environment – a piece of
expository prose, a snatch of poetry,
or dramatic dialogue, a newspaper
page, document, map,  painting, photograph,
etc. – as a lineated text
and hence a poem, or the incorporation
of a prior text (see ALLUSION) into
a larger poetic structure.
