National Poetry Month: Day Five

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

This morning, a blackout poem, which is a kind of found poem you make by blocking out various words in an existing document. This one came from an e-mail.

Response to Colleagues

Thank you
We *do* understand

All under

Sorry about
Exclusion. We did reduce
Attempts to go lower

Plans to knock down walls or
Whatever else is needed
The simple fact is,
We do not even have enough

Which break out
And anything
That I’m not aware of
Thrives with
Our own and that we’re all in this together


  1. so much more powerful and hopeful than the actual depressing email

  2. Robyn, I’m loving these poems! Keep them coming! David
