I am happy to report that my blackout poems “The Path” & “Idea” can be found in issue 29 of Failed Haiku!
Blackout poems have recently achieved popularity because of Austin Kleon’s book Newspaper Blackout. I found the poems in the book “Hood: Trailblazer of the Genomics Age”. I found them by selecting words to produce a senryu. Then I blacked out all the other words with pencil and sharpie.
If you enjoyed this post, please like and share.
Verse Us - Poems I write: haiku, senryu, mesostics, free verse, random word constructions, I might even use rhyme or meter once and a while.
