"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.

are the fringe, not the core.
I took this from a letter to the editor.
I think this letter represents a lot of
people who have voted Republican all their lives, but can no longer, in good
conscience, support a Republican party that more and more represents the fringe
and not mainstream Americans.
