301 Moved Permanently


Now There’s War

Second prize winner of the 3rd Annual Geist Erasure Poetry Contest.


Cut-up limbs
come home from dust.

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.
