59. Blackout Poems, Again

A reader (who would like to remain anonymous) recently sent me these four blackout poems (in the style of Austin Kleon). The poems follow the artist’s statement, below.

The two in which the original text is longer are from a book written by a conservative republican in the 90s (that I had to read for class) about the moral degradation of society as evidenced prominently by homosexuality and abortion. As you can see, I’ve flipped the message, perverting the intended meaning– turning his own words against him, if you will.

Fascinating. Check the poemies. Then send in your own!



:this one is complex:

:addressing politics:

:uh oh, what is this condoning?:

Nicely done, anonymous friend. I’m glad you’ve taken something from this particular Rectangular World.
