I love seeing how poet's styles differ, and one of the really obvious ways is the use of capitalization. do you use it? at every line or just at new sentences? all lower case? why? i generally use lower case, bc i like the way it looks on a page and allows a more interpretive flow. i also like that lower case all have the same "status" there's this weird sense of equality and this ordinary, unassuming quality to it. i feel like it parallels life, since there really are only a handful of emotions we can all feel, yet infinite circumstances. the sameness amidst all the infinity and complications. anyway, would love to hear your thoughts... including which you like to read?
