Finding yourself

isaiahzagarEw, sounds self reflective. And I promised, no self-reflection! ;-)

Still, I promise! You're going to create a "found poem". It's a poem assembled from prose found in various contexts: newspapers, advertisements, books, labels, signs ... For this poem, type your name into Google, and scavenge what turns up for lines to use in your poem. Rearrange phrases, words and sentences into some pleasing form.

Okay, I only promise if your name isn't unique. :-) Mine is so all the pages are about me. So use someone else's name: your best friend from childhood, college roommate, first crush, random lawyer from the phone book, Harry Potter ...

(From Poetry Prompt from Google Tidbits)
