Blackout Alice

Today during writing workshop we did blackout poetry.  For those of you unfamiliar with this technique you simply take a portion of text, any text, and start blacking out words (articles, conjunctions, etc) any words you find uninteresting.  Then using the words that remain you create a poem.  Here is what remained today from my excerpt:

Considering her mind



daisy chain trouble


pink eyes

ran close

nothing remarkable



feet flashed

never before

burning curiosity

under hedges

out again

too dark


thump! thump! down

My text?  Alice In Wonderland

white rabbit
