Doggrel

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.

There was a fire in your former home, it was on the news. You brought me here, once, in my youth when nothing impressed me.
