Be : A blackout poem from page 2 of The Matrix Screenplay


Betsy Franco in “Conversations with a Poet: Inviting Poetry into K-12 Classrooms” outlines the characteristics of a list poem. It can be “a list or inventory of items, people, places or ideas.” Repetition is often used in this type of poem but rhyme is not a must. It is “usually not a random list. It is well thought out.”

The title of my black out list poem created from page 2 of The Matrix screenplay is titled “be”. To get a sense of the theme, you can check out Kamand Kojouri’s poem “Remember to forget”.

"Destroy your illusions so you can see reality. Destroy your fears so you can take risks. Destroy your ego so you can see life." - Maxime Lagacé

“The last entry in the list is usually a strong, funny or important item or event.” - Betsy Franco, “Characteristics of list poems”.
