50 Shades of Regret

Now imagine that you’re writing a found poem based on something a little more…well, base.

Introducing R.J. Keller’s brainchild 50 SHADES OF REGRET. And I can hardly type this with a straight face!

R.J. picked up everybody’s favorite book, 50 Shades of Grey and used it to create brilliant blackout poetry, such as this gem:

Double crap

Holy crap

Poem #2, by R.J. Keller.


Art! It’s art, I say!

I bought my own copy from Goodwill, brandished my Lysol, and I’m going to take a crack at it, as well.
