Selection ... and Deletion
The newsa print poems are not only about selecting words from a news story to be included in the poem..it is also about deletion. After a do a first draft, I start deleting words, deleting lines, deleting whoe stanzas. After that it is sometimes back to selection to find new words to delete those I deleted.
