I do not know anything about poke, however I have researched some into wild lettuce, there are a few different plants under that name, I have been looking into "lactuca virosa" also known as "opium lettuce" https://duckduckgo.com/?q=lactuca+virosa&t=canonical&iax=1&ia=images
Is this anything like the wild lettuce your talking about?

I also have some woodland ragwort (senecio sylvaticus or senecio viscosis) I believe. It's growing around my central air unit. Very showy with many seed heads that are lobe shaped. Seems I have a lot of poisonous plants near me.
Not sure about here but you can use http://imgur.com/, then you can post a link. Was the wild lettuce prickly on the back "Spines"?

I have a little point and shoot camera that I picked up from a yard sale for $5, its one of my favorite tools.
As for Poke, I have heard soe many arguments for/against it, but Susun Weed employs Poke Tincture as a rather potent ally sometimes.

The ink is a lovely purple, but will dry and age over a few days to a brown ink, similar to "dark coffee stain". Each year we make a bottle of ink with my son, and it's always fun to turn all purple while we prepare it. Have fun!
This is my favorite online group to ID plants too: https://www.facebook.com/groups/623997204362467/
