Poem a Day #28 – Erasing the Box

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 web site called “Erasures” to automate the process. The source text is History of the Gatling Gun Detachment by John Henry Parker, and I’ve called the poem “Erasing the Box”

  1. Works well Mike. I love the ‘erasure’ concept and that looks like a good resource to do it. Thanks for the link; I might do one tomorrow or Wednesday. Jen

Please tell me what you think?
