Ritual and Recognition

Beginning strong on April 1 for Na/GloPoWriMo with a blackout poem!

Some blackout poems require me to take my time before the words show themselves to me. This one jumped off the page at me, impatient to speak.

I created this while I conducted a mini-seder for myself, complete with singing all the tunes from my father’s seder at the top of my lungs – but only one glass of wine, and no matzah because my digestive system is already protesting!

    1. I’m enjoying the way “But I do not understand” can be read as I’ve captioned it, or after “the child expected to break.” Seriously, the more I create blackout poetry, the more I love the form ๐Ÿ’œ
