POEM # 20


This is a form of poetry called black-out, or found poetry. Take a page from any book, pick random words to use in your poem, blacking out the rest of the page. This one is taken from the book “Urban Legends” by Richard Roeper, page149. 



Hypnotic and driven,

The echo generated a dramatic mood.

I feel the coming crescendo…

Perfect for haunting, tonight.


Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    • Thank you, Kelly, for visiting here! This type of poem is new to me, so wanted to see what I could come up with. (I didn’t really mark up my book, though…just picked out some words on that page…but I suppose if you wanted a picture of it you could black it out for real) 🙂
