Studies in Micro-Scansion







There's this lovely "Semicolon's Dream Journal."

And while you're at it, I found this to be an amazing allegory about how language is the original Wiki, or commons, and a great dystopian tale about language and ownership. And an especially good expansion of some of the things I was talking about here. (Courtesy of Buggeryville.)

And makes me think: I imagine studying the cracks in the sidewalk in order to try to tell the story of the city.
