They're all part of this post, that's what! :)
Recently my mom found a cool book called "Newspaper Blackout." In this book, Austin Kleon takes a newspaper and a sharpie and blacks out the words he doesn't want, to create poems.
My super cool teacher/mother told me to do this for school.
Best. English. Class. EVAH!!!
We each decided to use old books we didn't want anymore instead of a newspaper. It's super addicting, kinda like Mad Libs. :)
Mostly all I got was super random silly sentences, not poetry. But hey. It's still fun. :)
^What does that even mean??!?!
The next is one of my favorites.
Finally I desperately tried to actually make something resembling poetry. This is what I got:
"The stars blazed and swirled in the void, an unruly tangle of light. Silent, birdlike and fluttering."
Not bad, eh?
And now for the second part of this post:
No one should ever be too old for this stuff. Seriously.
^I traced my friends shadow. :)
So, you gonna try some blackout poetry now? Or sidewalk graffiti?
You know you want to. :)
