Above is an artwork called Potato Person. It was made by arranging potatoes to make a person shape, taking a photograph of the arrangement, and computer altering the photograph. This artwork can inspire poetry. One idea is would be to see symbolism in a person made out of potatoes and apply this idea to a poem. The idea of a person being metaphorically made of something basic could be used in a variety of ways in a poem.
Here is an example poem inspired by the artwork:
After working in the ground,
for months on end,
the farmer finally sold,
pieces of himself.
