Erasure poetry

Standard

Sorry that I havn’t posted…

This is part of an erasure poem that I am in the process of making. Erasure poetry is made by taking books and crossing out words from each page to make a new work of fiction and or poetry within the existing work. Here is a little sneak peek of what I have erased! I am 42 pages into this 67 page book as of today. At the bottom is a funny example of erasure that I found whilst searching the internet.

A miniature history of opera

FACE
a birds eye and
clear drawn
features are remebered,
overlapping
strict
consistsncy
In a way that seems to
recall
omissions.
A music-lover
would
pose a mere outline map,
absorbed
the detail
a fresh view of
outlines.
artistic geography-
a skeleton map.
