This project began after reading Walter Benjamins Arcades Project, and the fascination with idea of the fragmentary nature of history and the fragmentary nature of experience. I began the first series of poems, by taking fragments from many different sources and then combining them into one poem or text. From these fragments, I then sanitized a poem, using the fragments from the different sources and additionally adding my own lines. The later series of poems are more closely defined as found poems, poems found in the non- poetical text of the original without out any additions or only minor additions. I hope you enjoy my serendipitous discoveries
