Harold Washington Library – Author Unknown

If anyone can direct me to the original source of the image in the link, I’d be much obliged.

The way things can be perceived as poetry is kind of fascinating to me; while in general I think there’s a set of writing structures that are easy to recognize as poetry (rhyming couplets, limericks, haiku, for example) what actually constitutes “poetry” is difficult to pin down. When we get to more freeform styles, it has more to do with there being a certain rhythm or intentionality about the way the text is read and structured on the page. Which, now that it’s pointed out to me, this script definitely weirdly has? I’m never going to be able to un-hear it.
