Earlier I wrote a post about Found Poetry. I wrote something new and unique using Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine. Ah, Bradbury! What a thing of beauty!
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:
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.

Art on. 🙂
What a fabulous idea! Only… that will mean I have to buy a copy of 50 Shades of Grey and I’m not sure I can stand the embarrassment. I mean, everyone will think I’m buying it to *read*…
Haha, Jane! I bought mine from Goodwill through the Amazon marketplace.
Hence the Lysol. 😉
Ah, that’s cunning. Then nobody knows you’ve bought it. I was picturing getting it from a charity shop and having to suffer the pitying looks of the staff.
Lysol, hell. I’d need a full-body haz-mat suit. 😉
Paul, that made me laugh! 😀
