Finding Home ~ Blackout Poetry #2

Finding Home





you kissed
my heart

and I
was home















A note on form:  Blackout poetry...Erasure poetry...Redacted poetry...by whatever name you wish to call it....  The above construction is formed by taking an already existing piece of work (whether from a book or newspaper or any other written entity) and removing words until you are left with something that hopefully makes sense.

About this series:  My goal is to challenge myself to unearth some semblance of sense through the use of blackout/erasure poetry. 

Attribution:   Blackout Poetry unearthed from a page in Erin Kelly’s novel, The Poison Tree.

That's perfect.. I have to try this once. I remember one blogger I came across where poets used the same page to create different poetry... hmm that might be nice..
