Great work! The poem would be good on its own, but the visual form really makes it special. It feels like it's scattered and drifting, or echoing off another surface.

Also, congratulations on your Daily Deviation!

Well done. I like the text and the Format is interesting. I think it kinda gives it more...atmosphere and maybe even meaning.
Congrats on the DD!

Curious.

Is there a specific name for this style of formatting?

DogmaticKerr Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2018
I suppose something along the lines of typeface/typography describes it most generally ^.^ I always only ever tried to present plain prose in a way that hinted at meter/rhythm/reading-out-loud.

And that, you certainly succeeded - although I cannot tell for certain if the vision is the same as the impression, do get a very clear sense of meter and intonation.

If you trust I mean only praise in saying so, can well imagine this read in a computerized voice. Neither the stereotypical computer voice of popular culture nor modern semi-natural speech synthesis, but the tenebrous, musical voices of Isao Tomita and his Holst interpretations. Especially the form adapted for the computer chatter which opens the dialogue of Alien - the formatting seems a dear relative of readouts of data streams of the time.
I would not mind one bit seeing this read out as a demo on an Amiga 1000.

Well done.

By the way, you name seems familiar, as if I have seen it recently.
Say, do you like anthro canids? Canids in crowns?

Thank you! I am sure that it's not - it's always up for interpretation, but I prefer it infinitely over plain old block stanzas :D

Of course I do! Even without further context - which makes me blush - I'd love the reading in that way because I'm quite the analytical and measured sort ;D

:bow:

I'm actually quite fond of anthros, though this seems quite specific - anthropomorphic canids in rows doesn't ring a bell, but certainly sounds intriguing.

I'm sure I haven't - but on the off chance that I have, I'd urge you not to worry, as my writing comes from a place of pure misery and loneliness :lmao:

Is that mayakovsky’s ladder in prose?
Reply
:icondogmatickerr:
DogmaticKerr Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2018
I've no idea what that is - but I'm also sure that it probably at-least generally describes this ^.^ It was only ever an effort on my own part to present my writing as something other than standard, simple block stanzas. I've tried to hint at more meaning and rhythm for out-loud reading.

This is fantastic! Very well executed and a very risky format to boot! Well worth the DD, in my opinion.

For some reason, the way you formatted this, is kinda satisfying to read,, i'm weird i'll leave pfft-

DogmaticKerr Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2018
You are very kind - I'm glad you find the format somewhat appealing - it's a bizarre glimpse into my head and hints at the way it should be spoken aloud. It's okay, I'm weird too, let me leave first.
