Breaking the Rules

the original source,
word for word.
Isn’t a poem
(only in matters of style)

words invent
spoken or graphical sources;
In italics or speech marks.

Extract whole excerpts,
keeping them…
And arrange them in lines ☺

Capitalise line beginnings,
to show the veracity of the excerpts.
you may choose whether or not to…
… disguise personal names!

Exercise poetic licence,
Invent punctuation,
E.g. render numerals or symbols as…
YOUR OWN TITLE!!!!!!!!!!

Dan has literally broken the rules.
