This post is part of a series of weekly found poetry prompts. If you have an idea for a found poetry source, email Senior Poetry Editor Beth Ayer.
Some might call this week’s poetry prompt…Kafka-esque. Our source text (below) comes from The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. Erase or otherwise remix the page below, and please share your resulting poem in the comments. Just click the source text to open a larger image, or head over to Project Gutenberg to consult the text yourself in html, Kindle, pfd, and other formats.
