    I’m a huge fan of codework parathetical insertions–they remind me of the bracketed suggested readings used in translations of ancient poetic fragments, but as employed here the multiple readings are embedded into the poem itself, and purposefully fragment the language into phonemic strings, the poem shrinking and expanding simultaneously. This aspect made all the more interesting by using Gibbons, as the brackets are most often seen used in translations of ancient Greek and Latin poetries (e.g. Catullus, Sappho). Awesome.
