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. 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.
