The Steal Like An Artist Journal — Exercise 03/12/2016

Here is my first exercise from The Steal Like An Artist Journal — blackout poetry. Taking a printed piece of text, it asks you to black out one word at a time until you are left with a poem. The page is from Moby Dick. My poem is titled — The Chase.

The Chase

After the light
travels through day into night,
the wonderful geniuses
among the simple
will continue to hit
unseen
through the darkness
so that
this skill [is]
as reliable as 
the mighty time.
