Hey ho – I was pondering re-posting an old work and was looking back at past October poems to see what I could unearth, when I came across an old dVerse prompt response from October 2013. I remember writing this, and having great fun, using a discarded newspaper I liberated from the train on my journey home from work!
So, I decided to have another go at flarfing, this time using a copy of the freebie local community magazine, Preston Pages, that hits the doormat every month. Again, all rather random, but that’s the fun. And it works (I think!).
Please do head on over to dVerse to find out what others have offered in this free reign Thursday prompt. I’m sure there will be some surprises for you 🙂

Oh you brought forth the fun in found poetry… I find the brain interesting in that it actually finds meaning in the randomness. I think I might call for a brief hiatus soon…
A brief hiatus sounds like bliss 🙂 Thank you, Bjorn.
That’s some fun flarfing and I love being able to recognise names and places! Does Gamages still exist?
Thank you! I don’t think it does, sadly.
Oh this is just so brilliant and playful a poem 😀 enjoyed this one Freya ❤
Brilliant and thus far the best poem I’ve ever read. 🙂
If I remember correctly I wanted to introduce ‘Flaf poetry’ to dVerse at one time.
It never got mentioned or they forgot about it.
I love this poem a lot. My favorite. 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the compliment 🙂
You welcome. 🙂
I also, posted a poem on Thursday. In case you didn’t stop by and read it. 🙂
The link didn’t work – could you put it in a reply here?
We did flarf poetry in D’verse before and it was so much fun ~ I enjoyed the process, more than the surprising ending ~
It’s a funny journey 🙂
I must have missed the flarfing! An interesting concoction of randomness. 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Like Mish, I am new to this – but intrigued with what you achieved… Thanks for stirring me in this area… With Best Wishes Scott
Interesting. I must have missed the flarfing post in 2013. I may have to go back and check it out for a future OLN. This was fun, though I didn’t understand it one bit. And I suppose that’s the point.
I think it must be!
I have no flarfing idea what is going on here but carry on. It’s wonderful.
Still none the wiser 😉
I’ll have to look up “Flarf” myself and thanks to paulscibbles i’ll check out flarfing 🙂
Oh please do – it’s a freeing fun-filled exercise!
I love this line: “To begin with you need to halve and de-seed your hips”
So do I 🙂 Thank you!
Clever take on the prompt and the form, Freya!
Love it…..there is sense and there is sense……and finding it randomness is very fun.
Oh yes, I agree!
I adore Found Poetry — have only been with dVerse for a little over a year and had not heard the term “flarfing.” ….using another f word — FUN! 🙂
Me too! Flarfing was new to me until dVerse introduced me to it!
I think it works, too. And it’s fun!
