Recently, we came across a lovely literary blog called The Elegant Variation. On it, was some wonderful “found poetry” by Fiona Maazel. Now, according to Fiona, she happened across the testimonials page on the Amazing GOOP Web site and was inspired to write some short poems about the stories therein. Thanks to Fiona for letting me repost these for you here. Enjoy

On a whim around my home
I discount new friends.

Car started in ’73 but
people last for years
lost and dried one way or another.

Partners live in dead-end months of
need.
Stretch, run, work.

Men in full-service apparel have
clientele in Tasmania.
I figure the perfect love regards glue
As a competition.
