Black-out poems!

My friend, Alexandra Naughton, recently created an E-book of poetry created by taking a black marker to Billy Corgan’s book of poetry. It’s a technique that’s sometimes called black-out or deletion poetry, and I thought it was a really cool idea.

I was inspired to give it a try, and so I went looking for material. I figured out that there are some emails and messages that we send and receive that have another message to show, and so I started collecting those emails .

If you’ve ever received one of those emails that make you say, “wow, this is crazy. I need to show somebody.”, then send it to me at joe@totallyshould.com ! If you’ve been broken up with over email, had a crazy ex-landlord, a school project partner with insane excuses, send them my way!
