Now I get it. I’m starting to catch on. They’re called blackout poems or newspaper blackout poems. Find some text, start circling one, two, maybe three words that speak to you on each line. Black out the rest. Find a poem among redacted text. This is my first attempt. I thumbed through my copy of Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible on my iPad Kindle reader. The word unicorn caught me, though I didn’t use it. I might have broken a rule, though. I thought the last two words I circled made for a great title. Edit: I forgot to insert the word inhumanly – fixed it!
