This goes out to CTG for the found poems lesson.  WOW.

This poem is from Epitaph for a Peach, by David Mas Masumoto (page 120)

edit:  David Mas Masumoto commented on this post!

Our class made this poem: 

TREAT

A cloud of peach perfume

devour

Second Helping:  patient, selective

Searching overripe ones

I’m eyeing

each

time

I

Pass…

peaches:  fully exposed

ground is different underneath

more sandy; sides exposed

Summer Heat

Family Gathers

I reach and pick a gushy

entree.

(2nd period)

(3rd period)

ALLURING FLESH

juice dribbling

suck out meat

primeval grin

childish behavior

flesh

dangling

from my teeth

continue stuffing

leaks down my shirt

candylike pulp

feast

celebrate

Beginning of Harvest

    Great found poems, people! I especially like that “alluring flesh” one–so seductive!

    (re-post!)

  2. Wonderful words.
    Playing with the senses
    Create flavors
    that fill our hearts
    with juice
    gushing
    over our faces.
    Smile.

    Thanks for thinking of my peaches!

    Mas Masumoto
