In BIM today we wrote some blackout poetry using a newspaper article.
‘A blackout poem is when a poet takes a marker (usually black marker) to already established text–like in a newspaper–and starts redacting words until a poem is formed. The key thing with a blackout poem is that the text AND redacted text form a sort of visual poem.‘
Today in BIM we were attempting ‘blackout poetry’. I really enjoyed it and it was funny the paper I was using had an article with the name Rebekah in it!
Blackout poetry is were you used already written text to make a poem! But I just picked out and wrote the words out cause my hand is not functional enough to put lines under particular words or anything. Here it is:
Rebekah said why
wish this never happening
I could have changed
she rarely cries
she’s a tough character
hard to cope
