Erasure Poems

I tried something today that I’ve never tried before: erasure poems.  I have no title for it, nor do I have any idea if it’s good or not.  This poem can be found in The Selected Levis.


Larry Levis Erasure Poem


The Town (His title, not mine)


This moon, so empty

You can pin it down, make it stop

The feel of pussy, and candy

They left them in ditches

Their wives grew older

Hair in their eyes

They weaned, they multiplied

One died, curls up and disappears

Under the moon.
