Revisiting the Lines from Erasure Poetry

Last weekend I spoke at a conference and used erasure poetry. Today I revisit those lines.

Untitled: From Parks' "Flavio's Home"

Mad people grumbling

bad luck

nothing stopped the son-of-a-bitch

* * * * *

Success: From Hasselstrom's "A Peaceful Woman Explains Why She Carries a Gun"

Utter clarity

teaching

exploration

positive steps

confidently practice

dare

well trained

realistic

sure

ready

convincing myself I can use it

capable

believing in me

* * * * *

Untitled: From Chopin's "The Storm"

ripping

not afraid

uneasiness

the approaching storm to fall

a trance

an intention in driving sheets

disheveled
