I'm Chels. I blog about science, art, tennis, and my adventures in journalism. Officially, I'm a Science Writer at Brookhaven National Lab and I blog for them, too. Unofficially, I'm pretty awesome.

Or, you know, owsome.

So here’s my first stab at Blackout Poetry. I was sitting in the sun doing the crossword and then that was finished, so I did the word jumble and the stupid word search, and I even did the awful Sudoku. And it was still sunny outside and I wanted to keep sitting there reading, and I came across that weird part of the comics page where they have that narrative about bridge that means absolutely nothing to me. I mean, do bridge players really read that and enjoy it? Or is it like, "Huh, okay, I know what those words mean."

Anyway, I figured I’d cut it up into a little poem. I’m not in love with the result, but let’s hope I get better as I do more of these. This was harder than I expected, but also a lot more fun. I imagine it’d be a good way to pass the time next time I’m stuck in an airport for a while.
