"Just the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,
    As he landed his crew with care;
Supporting each man on the top of the tide
    By a finger entwined in his hair.

It’s all too common. You sneer at something, like free verse, then somebody comes along and blows you away with an amazing example, this time courtesy of Brennen. This is how free verse has power, how it can communicate in a way that I’ve honestly never seen in any other medium.
