Bookquet

 

A series of found poems

 

Author’s Note

 

On May 26th, 2012—the day my wife and I were married—instead of the traditional arrangements of organic material, we surrounded ourselves with handmade paper flowers assembled by friends and family from the pages of upcycled books. The following poems have been gathered, collected and culled from the petals of those bookquets in an attempt to capture and record this fleeting and joyous occasion.
