Every month (or nearly every month) I work in a generative space that asks us to make seven poems for seven days starting on the seventh of each month (it’s called ‘sevens’).
For March, I experimented with erasure poetry. I really admire some of the visual/erasure poets out there, including Sarah J Sloat, Tom Phillips, and Mary Ruefle.
For these seven (well, there are actually eight) experiments, I used a mixture of traditional collage and photoshop, and I added some text where it felt right.
I’ll be continuing to work on these, to see where they go, but for now, here’s an example below.
