Garage Sale Exercise

My life has been a series of big garage sales. I'm always trying to sell things I'm lukewarm about to people who don't want or need them. O.K., use that has an exercise: Write a poem that's a garage sale, cutting and pasting lines you don't like from rough drafts of poems into one document. Once you have about 20-25 lines of that "junk," revise it and make it into a poem.
