Newspaper Blackout


When I saw a reference to Newspaper Blackout on Twitter, I had to check it out, just based on the title. Turns out, it’s not really about newspapers.

What it actually is — a guy takes a newspaper page, and covers over it with magic marker, skipping a handful of words that then form a poem. And it’s one of those concepts that at first struck me as gimmicky, until I realized that some of the poems are actually pretty good. May have to buy it before long.
