Thanks. Zooming in and then zooming out, and loving how the discoveries of blackout poems bring to the surface new arrangements of words, and meanings, against the visual backdrop of the original.
Interesting. I like the backdrop of the booklet to the poem. Giving multi level meaning.
Great erasure, Shaun!
Why anyone would ever name a camp or mag that…???
Fabulous erasure. The booklet title adds to it.
This erasure is perfectly whittled down. Very well done and I love he accompanying visuals.
Can’t help thinking of what the experience of those CCC people was like…maybe a kid from the city seeing the sky for the first time. Thanks!
There’s a great letter from the editor in the original document I linked up there that’s far superior poetry to my erasure! It’s basically about how beautiful ky in June is.
your style and form teaches me there is so much more to learn of poetry than I have ever glimpsed. Good work.
