Text Me


I watched how to make a text portrait at YouTube last night and found myself trying one. The end result was Text Me using a photo of myself and one of my poems called Baptism:

I feel a sketch of sun
Upon my Caucasian skin as
I walk across Feng Shuied stream,
This chasm of youth,
With bare and crooked feet
I silted the stream,
Each step, breaking Zen
Like a foreign language
Translated and broken into
Fragments of sound until
I washed away in the sediment
Waking along the
Extended banks of peripeteia
Sutured to my new life.

That poem is outstanding. Clever idea to make a portrait from it like that.
