Review of Lost and Found by Ron Padgett

Lost and Found by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, Ron Padgett, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on March 28, 2013.  For a poet with such credentials, I hope that this poem is not an example of his finest work.  Although arranged in verse, I hesitate even to call it a poem.  Worse, he ends the last line with the word "at."
