To be honest, it's really commendable of you to try to appreciate a new form of poetry, I never tried to appreciate blackout poetry despite seeing it around. Thanks for the thoughtful review!
That would explain why I haven't come across it before, then
I wouldn't say that I dislike the actual poems that emerge once all the redactions have been put in, but I just feel that the appearance of a blackout poem is always going to be a bit mournful. I think it would difficult to produce a happy, uplifting poem when the page is mostly black! Thanks for commenting!
