makes the waiting
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. This piece is technically my second attempt at such a feat, but the start of this new plight and thus marked as Blackout Poetry #1. I have, for the fun of it, included my first attempt below.
