Popularized in recent years by writer and author Austin Kleon, blackout poetry encourages readers to create poems by redacting words from ordinary texts. During the last seven days of National Poetry Month, we will feature snippets of Times articles you can use to create and share your own short poems.

Holy moly, the NYTimes does blackout poetry. Things come full circle.
