Blackout Poetry-I

I love trying my hand at blackout poetry (also known as erasure poetry)! When I am reading in bed after a long day, and have trouble focusing, certain words on the page pop-up. I used to think it was weird before, but ever since I found out about this form of poetry, I have been underlining the words in my books to later turn them into poems. It is fun!

something shrill

woke up everything

in my memory-

darkness full of fumes

hovering over me,

seeking an outlet

utterly remote.
