Found Poem:

Jem stamped his foot

Jem Grabbed my pajama collar and wrenched it tight

Jem put his hand out and stopped me

Jem scowled darkly at me

Jem suddenly grinned at him

Jem made pleasant conversation

Jem educated on a half-Decimal half-Duncecap basis

Seemed to function effectively alone or in a group

No tutorial system devised by man could have stopped him from getting at books

Jem’s head at times was transparent

I love found poems. I'm always amazed at what comes out of them.
