This blackout poem was found on pg. 7 of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter.
The method for Unfinished was that each poet took two seperate turns writing a stanza of 4-5 lines, before the entire piece was revealed. We then proposed edits, until we felt the piece was complete, which took us through five edits to arrive at this piece.

it is more acceptable to drink the Kool-Aid when presented in this manner;
... a prelude to reconstruction;
If I could go back and relive just one dream I would choose
