Anyone else doing Blackout Poems?
I do most of them in my own language, Dutch, but I made some in English too.
A Blackout Poem is made from an existing piece of text (I use pages from old damaged books), by picking words for the poem and blacking out all other words with a marker.
The poem has no relation with the original text.
The poet is limited by the words he/she happens to find in the text.
