Poetry Friday: Enigma by Erica Westcott


If you cannot read the text above, here it is, plain:

The best way to achieve the impossible is to endure it as you would an epidemic of beauty.
- Enigma by Erica Westcott

I found this piece in Austin Kleon's book Newspaper Blackout, which is a collection of poetry Kleon made by taking a permanent marker to newspaper articles and turning them into something new.  At the end of the book, Kleon included the winners of a newspaper blackout contest he held online in 2008. One of the winners was Erica Westcott, as seen above.

Check out Underdog by Austin Kleon, also published in Newspaper Blackout.
