Erasure Poetry (26/30)


The prompt for day twenty-six over at NaPoWriMo was to perform an erasure poem. An erasure poem is created by blotting, highlighting or taking out words of an existing piece of poetry then using those borrowed words to form a new poem. I chose a piece by Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie entitled Raindrop Women...


Women






Raindrop Women

are like balms

brown skin draped in gold

sunshine on brass

hair tuned

against inevitable crashes

with

chaos.


Teardrop Women

refusing to tip toe

between oppression and

aching wails

are

lightening bolts

speaking in tongues.
