Censorship and Poetry

Through my research I stumbled upon Austin Kleon.  Kleon is an artist/writer who composes poetry by using already printed newspapers and a sharpie marker.  He uses the marker to black out most of the words in articles in order to make poetry that is deemed “acceptable” by larger society.  What results are images that show the extent of censorship that is happening frequently in our society.
