boy, oh boy.

if I tick,
…………tow,
pitch 1 fit;
too hot for it
…………to hit 8.2?

too iffy.
   …………(tic)

………………………..twit.

Still following Margo Roby over to the Found Poetry Oulipost.

My words are pulled from the home page of the Las Vegas Sun, rendering the letters LASVEGUN unusable for the poem. Whew.

    I find myself laughing a lot today. The lipograms are such fun to read!
