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.

Thank you

All under
Limited
Space

Sorry about
Exclusion. We did reduce
Attempts to go lower
Rejected

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

Comments
