Watch your step upon the fragile, eggshell laden ground that is texxxtual arrangement
, formatting, if you will
. Actually, feel free to
s t o m p all over
It can be sort of fun
It's true that sometimes people abuse
this sort of thing, or that people misinterpret it from time to time. Sometimes words sprawled haphazardly across a page do mean
something, sometimes there is a specific reasoning behind them. While I'm not discounting the previous write-ups content, I just think that we have to be kind of careful
as to what we peg down as such.
The arrangement of text can be very critical
in conveying meaning, or it can be very insignificant
. It depends on the content, and sometimes it adds much to the f l o w
, or lack thereof, in a piece of poetry.
What are you saying here?
Don't be too quick to judge
every poetic work with madly arranged text, as some are prone to do. That would be quite similar to reading with your eyes closed
I tend to over-analyze a lot of things, finding meaning others don't/can't/haven't.. it makes life more in
