"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.
There’s a place to comment below. I’ll get it started.
The Mayans did not predict the end of time, only the end and start of a
new cycle (b'ak'tun). And even if they did predict the end of the world, why would anyone believe the Mayans, who made their prediction 5,125 years ago, were right. 12/21/14: We'll all still here..
