The Oxford English Dictionary defines text as “the wording of anything written or printed; the structure formed by words in their order; the very words, phrases and sentences written”. Based on this, I thought what better way to express my understanding of this definition then by using text itself in the form of words, phrases, sentences to create a poem. My poem aims to capture the impact of text and examines the power that it wields on us.
