when you read
what do you look
for? words that consume
you with emotion --
do you appreciate
the syntax


notice all
the letters throughout
the piece are exclusively
in lower case
-- a technique
to confuse the reader
as to where one sentence
ends -- and the other
begins -- feel each
weighted word
as it takes
the anxiety

simply whittles
itself into a stack
of letters who stand
alone in their own
right but -- together
there will always
be s.c.o.p.e.
