the writer, by Britta Benson

Picture credit: Britta Benson

I’m ploughing my way through ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’. I still love my blackout poetry project. Today, I did another four pages and I want to share this one with you.

It amused me to ‘find’ this writer on the page.

the writer

the writer mingled with love,
toasted memory

lack of maturity
avoided reality,
surrendered to truth
and slept

body and soul,
growing old,
little by little
in their own time

against the certainty
of death

oldest memories,

the end could not reach
the spot that itched

a strange sensation
of not feeling

a sad smile

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comment. Much appreciated. I love blackout poetry. I love the surprising findings. It’s so unplannable. There have been pages, where I’ve struggled to find anything, but I never give up. I simply stare at the page for as long as it takes to find the hidden treasures. I’m quite a stubborn creature.

      1. It’s good to find something we enjoy doing. Of course we like to make/write what others may enjoy. But I must be pleased with myself first. (stubborn about that too…. lol )
