Hello! New around here and I received a comment on a blog post I did referring to the mail art "TrashPo" and recycled treasures-all from renowned prolific and definitely 'treasurable' artist Richard Canard of Carbondale...all of which I sincerely DO treasure (and thanx for the comment!)...almost as much as I treasure being a total word geek! So I ask the IUOMA ether: what is it? I would much appreciate a bit of guidance here! Thanks, Hilary.

Trashpo is trash as poetry?  Diane Keys aka DKULT was a proponent with numerous others here at iuoma.

The Trashpoets have taken a vow of silence since the appearance of the FAKE DK (which was foretold). It is possible to gain status as a Fake Trashpoet by completing training with an Official Legend of Trashpo or someone who has been named to the Order of the Tangerine Mink - but good luck finding them. 

But I must warn that the trail is long & treacherous to walk with Ray in the Great Landfill. Trash poetics & DKult are exceedingly difficult.

Yes, TrashPo is poetic trash, found, recycled, often discarded cardboard food packing,

sometimes known as "cereal-ism" that falls into the TrashPo category,

and there is also SandPo and ChocoPo...

anything and everything goes in mail art :-)

The poetry of the discarded. Unusual works by the Philadelphia Wireman-an unidentified artist.

PRESS YOUR PALM AGAINST THE BOTTOM OF DK's FOOT

CLOSE YOUR EYES & FEEL THE COSMIC TRUTH OF TRASHPO!

YOU ARE HEELED!    YOU ARE HEELED!!

BRAVO!!! And thanks for sharing.
