Poetry: Sick or Dead

(I created the following blackout poem from a random excerpt of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain)

Sick or Dead

What to do if a body
is sick or dead:

black crayons
black dress
black shovel
black veil
black tape
black slippers
black bird
black sealing wax
black hole

Hi! I am an artist, author, and blogger who also happens to have Asperger’s Syndrome. I have won several awards and honors for my writings and artwork. I suffer from a few severe mental illness and chronic pain conditions (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Ehlers Danlos, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc.), which greatly affects my life and makes me want to advocate for others going through similar things. Other interests of mine include reading, writing, drawing, watching cartoons and movies, collecting toys, hanging out with my family, and annoying my 3 cats.
