The First Time I Drank Gin

levine1

I made this comic as a response to the Found Poetry Review’s prompt for a found poem using the words of Philip Levine (the recently declared Poet Laureate of the United States). Each line comes from a poem by Levine. This was a quick one (probably a bit too rushed), as I wanted to get it done before they post this week’s prompt.

The lines are from (in order): “Gin”, “Green Thumb”, “A Sleepless Night”, “A Woman Walking”, “Animals are Passing from Our Lives”, “A Theory of Prosody”, “Clouds Above the Sea”, “For the Country”, “An Ending”, and “Gin”.
