Poem 7/30 Erasure Poem from the Road



I decided to return to Rachel McKibbens April 1 prompt to create an erasure poem from a page torn out of The Road. I used all the words left, and no additional words, but not in a particular order.

ERASURE POEM FROM THE ROAD
(prompt 27, Rachel McKibbens http://rachelmckibbens.blogspot.com/)

burning city
country river
just as I conceived
it to be

the boy
the common beast
the dead snakes

no remedy
cold hard edges
exposed
on hillside grounds

rose rock
whispered
and left
a lost moon
in blackness

  1. Loving this. That book seems to lend itself well to this style. Saw a few others from the same book posted today, but this is one of my favorites. "the boy/ the common beast/ the dead snakes" <--- powerful imagery
