Second prize winner of the 3rd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest.
Cut-up limbs come home from dust. Half-hims roam beds not sleeping, tire, quiet and go home. It’s America: not everyone’s together.
Erasure poetry begins with removing letters and words from an existing text in order to create a new stand-alone piece that provides new meaning to the original passage. For the 3rd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest, we posted an excerpt from a prose poem, Cottonopolis, by Rachel Lebowitz.
