This post is part of a series of weekly found poetry prompts. If you have an idea for a found poetry source, email Senior Poetry Editor Beth Ayer.
This week, write an erasure poem using the following text from chapter 9 of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (find the full text of this 1913 edition at Project Gutenberg). As always, please share your poems in the comments. As you will not be able to post images in the comments, feel free to post the text of your poem and/or a link to your blog if you create a visual erasure. Click the following text for a larger view.
