Longlisted for the 3rd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest.
Cookie barks At some threat Looming in the doggysphere Beyond my sensing. Sometimes you just see it in the eyes. She strains at the leash Pulling me into the world Of stinky poo. Black hairs everywhere Kissy wet warmth She's resting there, a pint full.
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 3nd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest, we posted an excerpt from a prose poem, Cottonopolis, by Rachel Lebowitz.
