#MondayMemory : Constitution

Lady of the Night vs. the Constitution
Found poem exercise from April 2010

(Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning.)


The power to lay with several,

To coin money?

And the standard punishment

To establish “offices”?

To promote exclusive discoveries

To “committed captures.”

On land, but NO CALLING

To execute organizing.

May be employed in service respectively,

The appointment not exceeding ten purchased,

Erection necessary!

Proper for execution in the department.
