In a Black Out Poem, the author takes copy from a newspaper or magazine and uses a black marker to strike out whatever words or images she sees as unnecessary or irrelevant to the poetic effect
she is seeking to create. Patterns or artwork can be employed to give an additional visual dimension to the poem.
Any printed material will do; this was taken from a random page of Consumer Reports magazine. Certain words jumped out at me,
likely my response to the results of the 2016 presidential election.
Thanks to my WordPress buddy, Lana, for the idea and inspiration.
RESIST, REBEL, RECLAIM
