This piece needs little explanation. It was an early experimental effort, and I have always been more comfortable with the idea than the execution. There’s no real theory behind the formatting, by the way. I just thought I’d try something unconventional.

At one time, I began collecting “rejected verses” (“Heavy thighs;/Lumpy knees.”; “Pretty face;/Cigarette.”), but I decided not to pursue it.

I wrote this in April 1997 and revised it in March 2001. I added a verse—should I call them verses?—on 12/2/2014.
