Blackout Poetry Vol. 1

BLACKOUT POETRY

I found out about blackout poetry when I was searching for ways how to overcome writer’s block.  True enough, it eases the struggle but in the beginning, it was not easy. All the words that I read in a book are screaming to me, “Choose me! Choose me!”  Finally, I was able to comprehend Attractive Annie and Life.


Life
BLACKOUT POETRY

                                         real life with fictional strangers
                                           life is tragic
                                           life with great gusto
                                           full of stories, business, breath, 
                                           disease

                                           of pity


Attractive Annie
BLACKOUT POETRY

                                                    Attractive Annie
                                                  pure - pure
                                                  tender, amused, and touched
                                                  so critical
                                                  so considerate
                                                  a twinkle twinkle
                                                  grown – up little girl

  2. I wanted to try out blackout poetry but I don't feel good doing this to my books! Haha! Might just buy something from a book sale so I won't feel bad.
