One type of found poetry uses the Google search engine to create small poems. These poems are a bit organic, they grow and change as the world types in their searches. It’s just another way to have fun with language. There is even a website for this poetry called Google Poetics. *Giggle* I think that if teachers instruct that poetry only be taken literally, that is a misuse indeed! It’s like Google is a grumpy old English teacher that really should’ve retired years ago!
