Longlisted for the 2nd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest.
The o o heartbeat in our gorgeous conversation.
She, saying we, whatever we make the other feel.

Be we all dirt hole canaries in an age of art severs form.
The nova took excited heat the soft flesh your throat just
breath nosed covert. So the vitamin dulled me, kiss me rough
with perfect rough with ions, good woman. Meteor mind
shouts clear through time, laughs at minutiae.

Erasure poetry begins with removing letters and words from an existing text in order to create a new stand-alone piece that provides new meaning to the original passage. For the 2nd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest, we posted an excerpt from the novel How Should a Person Be? by acclaimed Canadian author Sheila Heti.
The 3rd Erasure Poetry Contest is now underway. Enter today!
