Illustrations to accompany the poem "Words Are Birds" by Francisco X. Alarcon

The Found Poem project began during the pandemic, when I found myself searching newspapers daily for information to keep my family and myself safe. After a while, I began to look for other things -- connection, solace, answers. And then I took up scissors to make my own headlines out of the printed words. I call them found poems but I think of them as messages operating between the person I am today and the sort of persons who inhabit my  memories.

Today there are two volumes: Found Poems and Side Steps. Each is 32 pages and fully illustrated. Published through the imprint AllynPaperworks and available through the website
