Volodymyr Bilyk, ROADrage S erasures

Timglaset contributor Volodymyr Bilyk got a new book coming out. The title is ROADrage. It is an assorted collection of poems with all the boring stuff edited out and only the most meaningful and impactful bits left intact. Check it out here!
And because we can’t just allow shameless self-promotion, here’s a Timglaset exclusive – a series of erasures based on ROADrage.
All made virtually on the fly and captured viciously from the vortex of haste. These poems use only those words that start from the letter “S”. Because The Beatles Because.

How it happened: back in April, in the midst of final preparations, Volodymyr was listening to the horrendous 1997 remix of Raw Power. And had an epiphany. And so he took the manuscript and erased everything that wasn’t starting with the letter “S”.

This thing is like an alternative story – even more abstract and a bit conceptual because of all the “s” – squeezed out of a text into a thing of its own.
