Poet Death

The finality of death is an occasion that demands somber respect. The stenciled poem on the right side of the paper that, on occasion, bleeds off of the page, echoes the idea of departure. The red of the top color randomly bleeds into the letterforms that represents movement from one stage of life to the next. The poem itself contains a secondary poem within the text which is emphasized by scale of the words within the main poem.
