Free Crap on The Side of the Road - A Collection of Crappy Photos and Crappy Haiku Poems about Free Crap Found on the Side of the Road
Have you ever seen someone’s crap on the side of the road with a free sign attached to it? Maybe not even with the sign - it’s just free crap? They’re hoping they won’t have to take a trip to the dump so they just leave it out in their yard or on the corner underneath the weathered and tilted stop sign? I seek that free crap out.
I seek it out because it inspires me. Free crap on the side of the road inspires you? Indeed. Seeing an old copier or a mattress (god - there are so many mattresses) or a wet bag of clothes inspires me. I take a picture of it. Sometimes the photo is artsy fartsy. Sometimes it’s just a photo. Then I write a haiku poem about the copier, the mattress, the wet bag of clothes.
Free Crap on The Side of the Road - A Collection of Crappy Photos and Crappy Haiku Poems about Free Crap Found on the Side of the Road will be a celebration of crappy crap, crappy photos and crappy poems.
Examples of the book’s concept:
If I find a doll on the side of the road it might inspire a haiku poem about how they had to give that doll up because it killed two siblings.
If I find a TV on the side of the road It might inspire a haiku poem about “Gilligan’s Island.”
If I find a bag of wet clothes on the side of the road it might inspire a poem about a nearby nudist colony.
These are the Auden-esque poems I will write. The Wordsworthian poems that will inspire others. The Yeats-ish poems that will make people, for once, think long and hard about free crap found on the side of the road.
