One of my friends was telling me about a poet that took pages out of a book and crossed out words, circled words and phrases, etc. and made poetry out of another's work. Has anyone ever seen this done? Better yet, can anyone here do it? To accomplish this on-line it might be possible to change the color of the text, white for the words crossed out, black for the words kept, or blue.... I wait to see who's most clever here...JazzO?

An Ode on the City, Queen

One me,
a word; a page; a book;
this complex anyone.
Who's seen another's color?
white . . . black . . . blue
it can be yet better
ever possible, dear friends

I arranged as well: m'lady's quest
A challenge of my friend well met
Et took to book, cross sword and made
Of other work, a one verse stet

Ere I this night hang the hex
- the sword for words I severed
Perverse, it gi's thee this complex -
On honor, will it be ever dead.


Well, I didn't have a lot of prose to work with and I like cryptic crosswords. So sue me.
