New blackout poems

all men r hired to perform in an underrehearsed circus. but then fall from the stage
it is better off you know the me i put on the internet don't feel hoodwinked
i miss home and the team
the land of my lies has melted away / it was big as russia
i am a long way / around the block / between the native and the idiot
