I AM
by Erin Dorney

I am not permanent—
I was folded.
I was made to hold things
and on the way home he cut me.
Now I am ruined,
sitting here
in this dumpster.

I GREW
by Erin Dorney

I grew
I related
I used
I met
I would
I wanted
I knew
I looked
I decided
I could
I told
I got
I was so in love
I needed
I don’t know
I can’t
I have
I did
I’ve got
immaculate cheekbones

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: I am working on a series of erasure poems sourced from interviews with Shia LaBeouf (2006-present). I chose this celebrity due to his recent performances/statements regarding intellectual property stemming from the controversy over plagiarism in his own work. The pieces are explorations into ideas of ownership, remixing, and copyright in art and writing. Punctuation, capitalization, and line breaks have been altered but no words have been added.
