Poem a Day #28 – Erasing the Box

Take 1 poem.
Add website, Erasures.
Erase.

Sounds great fun.

Not much gas left in the tank of ideas, so today I’m doing an ‘erasure’ poem. This involves taking a random slab of text and erasing words to produce a ‘poem’ from the remaining words.

I’ve used a great website called “Erasures” to automate the process. The sourcetext is History of the Gatling Gun Detachment by John Henry Parker, and I’ve called the poem”Erasing the Box”
