Additional biographical information about Matt Hart may be found here:  http://www.versedaily.org/2012/aboutmatthartcpr.shtml.

The poet reveals in his notes that he composed this poem while caught in a rainstorm, darting from temporary shelter to temporary shelter, and hoping that his computer would not get wet.  There is a definite disjointedness to this poem, sometimes indicated by blank spaces within lines and hyphenated words.
