Kenneth Goldsmith’s Beard

These are redaction poems, sometimes call blackout poems, and are a means of using erasure and found text.

In this case, the ‘found’ text are poems by Kenneth Goldsmith, a poet who usually simply re-presents work from other contexts and gained fame by capitalizing on the murder of Michael Brown. Goldsmith’s work is unremarkable and, at best, an act of stale avant gardism.

I did this as a writing exercise a while back just to loose some frustrations (I’ve done the same to poems by Seth Abramson and the bigot Clint Margrave, which I may share latter on).

The poems are meant to playfully revel in mockery, in their artlessness and that of their source material.
