Blackout Poetry (Friday Night Poetry Corner #202)

 

Greetings everyone and welcome to a delayed Friday Night Poetry Corner. This week is a unique form of poetry by Mireya Pizano called “Our Hell is a Good Life.” Please take the time to read this and visit her blog while you are at it.

Our Hell Is A Good Life

Blackout poetry is a form of poetry where you get a page from a novel and you make a poem by using a marker to blackout words/phrases you don’t want to use. The end result shows your poem. You can also make an image out of it, but I’m not that artistic. Here are some samples I created for my high school students, who will be doing some before the school year is over:

up in the Gates
looks like the government
somebody once told me about.
Equal rights for all.
DEMOCRACY
We are Over – Prejudice.
The world is an inquiring soul.
I live for reason –
Change somethin’.
Learn the history, 
even the most terrible stories.

Plainly visible, I thought you could see me.
I was still dragging 
a strange little drama, on the sidewalk,
trotted to and fro
woes and  triumphs
I shivered against a blazing Winter
