she felt herself
– and final

to the other side.
During April, I participated in a 30-day Found Poetry Challenge, sourcing text from the book Jaws by Peter Benchley. My method involved layers, changing the top layer’s opacity, and then erasing parts of that image to reveal text from the lower layer/page of text. All 30-days can be viewed on Tumblr at https://miskyb.tumblr.com . I’ve decided to continue the challenge, and post some of pieces here.
Definition: Erasure poetry, also known as blackout poetry, is a form of found poetry wherein a poet takes an existing text and erases, blacks out, or otherwise obscures a large portion of the text, creating a wholly new work from what remains. It’s also an art form. More info: https://poets.org/glossary/erasure
