Black-out Poetry

Originally inspired by Austin Kleon and his newspaper/blackout poems, I’m addicted to this alternative adventure in the theme of found poetry (which has spread the globe in a fever of great variety). This exercise is a favorite of mine personally, and for workshops. I hope you will give it a try if you haven’t already. (Please feel free to also share your poems/images here in the comments below, I would love to read them!)

I gradually become extinct,

Swaying tender things,

probe the perpetual mist

in pristine freedom.

“First Light”

Darkness dies on a narrow ledge,

night mingles with light.

Imperfect. Green. Displayed.

They separate from the parachute

until ones survives.

Only one in the struggle for existence. Diversity.
