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.
