Inspired by The Tower of Babel, I decided to make a stream of letters, some more legible than others, that make out a poem of sorts that I wrote. Can this really mean anything, since the legible letters are still part of this incoherent stream? Can you actually know what this poem means?

P.S. I’ve had bad run-ins with making books, especially with inDesign and Adobe products in general. This project was really taxing and I ended up not making a physical book because it was too expensive.
