Using a digital image of the source text, paint over the text, obscuring lines until the remaining poem emerges. We had a short tutorial by PoMoSco’s Jenni Baker, video shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T__RD1aDsPY
It took me awhile to figure out how it worked (never used Photoshop before…) with multiple rewinds of the video, but I was able to do it. I then made one modification using old standby program, Paint, to show that there were actually two pages to the text, not just one.
My poem, Blue Satori, is shown here: http://www.pomosco.com/erasure/click-trick/blue-satori/
The source text is from the poem, Van Gogh’s Starry Night over the Rhone. from Lupercalia, The John B Newlove award chapbook by Sean Moreland, a Bywords Publication, 2008 http://www.bywords.ca/ http://search.library.wisc.edu/catalog/ocn387771948
