"News print poetry", a form of "found poetry" or "blackout poetry." I took one story from the Orlando Sentinel newspaper each day and transformed it into a poem by creatively selecting words from the story. The words are kept in their original order and no words were added. The 2012 project is completed, but I add new poems from time to time.
I commented on my progress, and about writing in general, on a companion blog: http://newsprintpoetry.blogspot.com.

universe is too vast, with respect to both time and space, for such life, if it
even exists, to ever be found.
