Three Visual Poems
by Shloka Shankar
night wore on
An erasure culled out from p. 300 of Flowers in the Attic by V. C. Andrews.
“I was introduced to found poetry in 2014 and it has been an unabated love affair since then. I enjoy finding my "voice" in a source text and manipulating it in order to render the original into something new. By using a variety of source materials such as novels, poems, magazines, movie quotes, and more, I play with language and re-contextualize how I see what I see. I also enjoy collage and creating abstract pieces from time to time. When these two interests meet, it's a match made in heaven!”
