176 - Have More Questions

Day 176. Another blackout poem, this time ironically from the source of blackout poems... I was not aware of Austin Kleon when I created my first piece if blackout poetry, but Kleon is the guy who came up with the idea (or at least wrote a book about it).

This time I used a piece of writing out of his book called Show Your Work, a book about creativity which I highly recommend.

The finished poem reads like this...
