The Switch ~ Blackout Poetry #5
was keeping time
with the sun
pink to silver white
shinning all over
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 Lee Smith’s novel, Oral History.
