Cut-up of the Exquisite Corpse 2 poem, lightly edited: punctuation, cut some the's, changed some tenses, combined some prepositions when the were next to each other, or when another one would make some sense--I let the original stand unless I couldn't even get a surreal meaning. Changed the "a" in "clatter" to a "u" because of the phrase the cut up generated. Cut about 2 phrases the cut up generated that I couldn't make fit naturally. I left it in the order it gave me.
Cut Up

The grave for Possibly: corpses, possibly
that jeune Jeanne Lucasia.

Look the other mute with all didn’t find me,
mucking about in his own autoclave.

The laureate reformats the shards.
Sirens suddenly go looking for my mind—

the indifferent way the sidewalk in Patmos
passed away in peace…

You didn't understand above the root.
I crawled into the microwave.

Clutters and white divans with lay
upon a round in sunlight,

it shatters beside the carry-on.
So heaves and cracks of lab glass somehow try to.

You do Chardonnay, Overnight Caller,
except perhaps for dark? The hooting dark.

To each of the cosmic hallmarks strewn across
the here-we-are. He smokes. And her eye? What?
I have to say I quite like some of this.

Another dubious one--

Answers to a game I found in a newspaper insert. Just added some spacing. It was titled "The Middle Son."

The Middle Son

Poi son ous
Ar son ist
Pri son er.
Super son ic
Per son able
Rea son able
Re son ant
Per son ality.

Nice one, Conti. Also Slater’s, which I remember from the solid-state “Light”. Laughed then, laughed now. << {In all capital letters.}

FOUND

... Found ... poetry is a type of poetry
... created by taking words,
phrases, and ... sometimes
... ... whole passages from other
sources and reframing them
as poetry ... (a literary equivalent
of a collage) by making
changes in... spacing and lines,
or by adding or ... deleting text,
thus... imparting new meaning.
... The resulting ... poem can be
defined as either treated:
... ... changed in a profound and
systematic ... manner; or untreated:
virtually ... unchanged from the order, syn-
tax and meaning of ... the poem.

I found this in the current edition of the New Yorker magazine, which I read primarily for the cartoons:

(Only the title is mine)

Witches' Stew

We stir the brew all morning
Marissa comes in whenever
stirs the brew for an hour
takes a smoke break
goes on her phone
we stir the brew
do some chanting
the sun comes up
whatever
we’re still stirring
Marissa’s on her phone again
and I’m
Like
“Seriously, Marissa?”

Hey R/B, just found your found poem. Dictionaries are the plain-spoken poetry of the written word : )
