I like poetry and want to write more of it, but need an easy way to do so. Just having a topic or a form isn’t enough. I’m going to do something like what you see sometimes in altered books where they highlight certain words and darken out the rest. I will select some words and use them to write a poem.
Last weekend I took the train downtown to the Strand bookstore and bought some inexpensive books on topics that are interesting to me. Then I went to a thrift shop a few blocks away and found these two vintage children’s books. Also very inexpensive.
