Found Art – inspired by Susan Firer

the life
I thought I’d have
the life grown out of love and loss
Found Art

Ellen Grace Olinger

This poem was inspired by Susan Firer’s photos of Found Art by Lake Michigan in Milwaukee.  Some of you have seen her art here before.

Susan knew my mother, Enola Borgh, when they were both teaching at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, years ago.  I heard Susan read a few years ago, when she was Milwaukee’s Poet Laureate.

Please visit Susan Firer’s website for more information about her work.
