yeah, i was thinking about suggesting to you

that you italicize those caps instead.

here's how:

at the beginning of what you want to italicize, place a lower-cased i between these < > with no spaces between the "arrows". end your italicized part with the same thing, except with a forward slash before the i, again with no spaces.

to underline text, replace that i with a u; to strike through text, replace that i with an s; to bold text, replace that i with a b.

p.s. i'm more swept up by sounds, visual imagery, and the sounds and rhythms of the language used. pretty much the only poet whose "idea poems" i really get along with is ani difranco, as of yet.
