All Her Odds and Ends, A Found Poem

Published today in Lunch Review, edited by D. Gibson, is this found poem I created from my father’s original letter to his parents on his arrival to Harvard University as a freshman on the GI Bill.  We meet Mrs. Beane who lived a short distance from Harvard Yard and gave him a home away home that he could just barely afford – and for which he was humbly grateful.

Harvard Square for Sept. 1948


From a series of found poems taken from letters between the poet’s deceased parents.
