I copied Gibson’stitle style. His title was in bold and healso doesn’t capitalize it. In the title, healso puts the place where he wrote it, thetime and the date.
Gibson starts off poem with one word. He puts a space inbetween it.
Structure of the poememphasizes Gibson’s train of thought. Itshows hoe he breaks down the words toconvey meaning.
In this stanza, Gibsonuses slashes to emphasize what a subjectis doing. The slashes represent therelationship between contradictory terms.
I imitated his uniquestyle of applying numbers to make apoint.
Gibson finishes hispoems with no punctuation both todemonstrate his style, showing its effectand to provoke a sense of mystery andawe to the reader.
