Blackout Poem

Blackout Poem

“use profanity. wear a leather jacket, and Shades. put out. disrespect liars. keep hope. release the balloons.”

I posted a video of Austin Kleon, who’s the author of “Steal Like an Artist”, in which he brings up newspaper blackout poems. As someone who identifies with creative, I have been intrigued by this art since I first heard about it a couple years ago. I must admit, I stole a few extra copies of Shoofly (KU’s literary magazine…sorry) and made some from my peers’ words.

But, I’m just posting this one, which I believe is one by Austin Kleon, although I’m not 100% sure on that, because I just adore its simplicity and its message.
