I wrote one of these a while ago, but this is my new take from March.

Sadly, the formatting doesn't survive posting.

My programming skills are so weak that I actually identified with the (unintended) format that allowed this face to come up: };

I can't say I fully understood the idea behind this but I think it might be interesting to consider programming and formatting a kind of storytelling. I mean, formatting is so important for poetry that I feel like something would fit there quite nicely.
