Blackout Poetry and the New York Times

I do love concrete, spine, and other sorts of shape poetry.  And so, on this final day of National Poetry Month, I enjoyed coming across  the  New York Times Blackout Poetry Generator:

Popularized in recent years by writer and artist Austin Kleon, blackout poetry encourages readers to create poems by redacting words from ordinary texts. During the last week of National Poetry Month, we will feature snippets of Times articles you can use to create and share your own short poems. 

You can see my effort here.
