Kathie Giorgio, Director of The AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop, posted a few odd lines from spam email she’d received.  After Ana, Ampersand Facebook Minion, challenged her to compose a poem from found gems in email spam, Kathie thought it would be fun to enlist her students and.  These are the results.

SAVE THE DUTCH ESTATE
by Summer Hanford

A broodingly rich legendary mollydoocker
A sweet form at midnight on a black sateen storm
The boxer cult classic homemade love story
A worldwide last chance for the luxury of memory
Miss Isabella . . . So free so new so haunting
Last night, did you hear the liquid metaphor
Detropia now open in the impulse of early raiders
Spirited legions, save Rubicon, rescue September
Drop your autumn beauty, focus excelsior now
Before they’re gone again, discover the missing night
