The original version of this is formatted differently, but I couldn't get it to work on the page.
Why are we so damn comfortable with left-justified pages? Canít we just E x p e r I m e n t ? i for one get bored when my iís and my eyes are all aligned in horizontal harmony. are we format-phobes? Or are we just too lazy to T r a v e l (unravel) the page with fingers, sight, or mind? conceptually comatose? veritable vegetables? allergic to a little alliteration not pleasing to the Iís? itís possible to right good computer poetry if you donít fall for the letter-writing- no- sentence- fragment -punctuate Ėcorrectly Ėand-capitalize those- iís pitfalls of listening to everything technology tells you (ewe)- be daring. Piss your computer off by using it to your advantage.
haha! awesome, i loved it, a poem about defying conventional means and those accursed computers with all their spell and grammar cheqing! bravo, i dug it, innovative, fresh, with a little rhyme in it, freestyle, cool, really liked the last line too.

Actually I found this pretty interesting as well as cute. It was well worded and certainly different. Several years ago a friend loaned me a book which was written entirely in this format. It was difficult to read, as was this poem. I don't remember the title but it was a description of Einstein's theory of relativity, written for T.C. Mits (The Common Man In The Street).
Brad, I got a good laugh from you observation that we usually breathe at the end of the line rather than the beginning. Great observation.
I still enjoyed it but I wouldn't want to read a whole lot like it.
Thanks for the chuckle.
