I like your poetic response to the Simon quote, but itís not actually a found poem. Here is a link to what Wikipedia says about found poetry.
And here is an article from The Found Poetry Review
Poets employ a variety of techniques to create found poetry. Common forms and practices include:
Erasure: Poets take an existing source (usually limited to one or a few pages) and erase the majority of the text, leaving behind select words and phrases that, when read in order, compose the poem. Examples include Tom Phillipsí A Humument, Jen Bervinís Nets and Austin Kleonís newspaper blackouts, just to name a few.
Free-form excerpting and remixing: Poets excerpt words and phrases from their source text(s) and rearrange them in any manner they choose
Cento: Poets unite lines from other authorsí writings into a new poem. The original lines remain intact; the main intervention comes in arrangement and form. Read more about centos.
Cut-up: Poets physically cut or tear up a text into words and phrases, then create a poem by rearranging those strips. Arrangement may be intentional or haphazard. Read more about the cut-up method of composition.
