A found text poem....it's words found buried within the text of a page from an old novel. To make these poems, I take a page of text from a book and delicately paint out all the words in white paint that are not the poem. How do I find the poem? Well, I suppose it's intuition and listening to language and to the flow of words and phrases, as my eyes dance across the page...the poems seem to announce themselves! It's delightful fun and always a surprise!

Book page measures 8 1/4" x approx. 5 1/2" and will come carefully packaged, ready for you to mount, frame or display as you desire.

Poem reads exactly as found in the text, line by line:

He promised
the confiscation of
sweeping
folly
produced by
an over-all
doing nobody any good
if not more so.
easy to
obvious
the orders
we shall see
on the other hand
his illustrious ancestor
was following his example.

Thanks so much for browsing Missouri Bend Studio...enjoy!

Shipping

Shipping from United States
Ready to ship in
1 - 2 business days
Because all my work is one-of-a-kind and each a different size and shape, it is very difficult to assess shipping costs, so listed prices are estimation. I will never charge more than the stated price, even if my actual shipping costs exceed this amount. The work is delicate and I spend a lot of time packaging each work carefully and must figure out the appropriate materials and method for keeping each item safe for shipping. When appropriate, I can package two or more pieces in one shipment, but my first priority is to protect the work and ensure its safety. Please keep in mind that the shipping costs include actual shipping, plus some of my time and the cost of materials. I ship as promptly as possible after payment is received.

Domestic Shipping:
Packages will be sent First-Class Mail through the USPS. Items are carefully packed so they should arrive to your door in fine condition. If you desire expedited shipping or insurance, please contact me and arrangements can be made.

International Shipping:
Unframed items will be sent First Class International. Items will be carefully packaged to insure a safe arrival.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept PayPal and money orders or cashier's check and will ship within two days after payment is received. Orders received on Friday will generally ship on the following Monday.

Returns & exchanges

I make every effort to package the pieces securely and they should arrive in fine condition, but if there is a problem with damage, please contact me upon receipt and we will work out a suitable arrangement. My goal is for you to be happy and enjoy the work long into the future, so will work to your satisfaction.

Additional policies

I am happy to discuss custom orders! If you come across a piece that is sold, and you would like a new piece made in a similar fashion, please let me know. I am open to conversation about making a work that meets your desires.
