Poems created with the limited lexicon on a single page from a falling-apart copy of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

All the pages have that gorgeous yellowed-hue that old books often have, and it contrasts nicely with the blacked-out lines, to create unique poems.

This listing is for the poem in the first image.

a peculiar
heart of mortal
spite
and yourself,
take
advantage

imagine that
you see
the lie
blemish
her
smile.

yes.

last night,
her
disgraceful
intelligence
sanctioned
well hushed up

refrain from amazement
that
encouragement of vice;
forgive.

Convo me to inquire about custom themes for erasure poems; I still have a hundred or so pages, so the poetic possibilities are infinite.

All poems are original and unique. The Buzzword Café does not sell prints. However, please note that M. da Silveira Serpa retains all copyrights to erasure poems and they may or may not be published on Etsy or in another format (magazine, chapbook, online journal, etc.).
