This is the "newspaper blackout" poem that Austin Kleon selected as one of three runner-ups last month. I will be awarded a free copy of Kleon's forthcoming book.

This southern-born, northern-bred Michigan-to-Tennessee-to-Michigan poet has published three haiku chapbooks to date, as well as two poetry chapbooks. Her poems have been exhibited on the walls of the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center and featured on the pages of the now defunct Canadian-based arts blog The Space Between. Two of Amy’s poems appear in the Civil War-related anthology Filtered Through Time. Her latest chapbook, Bathroom Poems, promises fun while you flush.
