It’s poetry month and I have been listening to an interview with Mary Ruefle on National Radio.  And I have been learning about Mary Ruefle’s life and work and her Erasure Poetry .   (http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/mary-ruefle)

Here is my version of Erasure Poetry, using the text from my previous post (https://silkannthreades.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/happy-birthday-to-a-special-friend/)


Shame on me!  I had forgotten.

Sincere apologies, my dear friend,

joy of being.

We agreed to love  and care throughout  life.

Pity  human
