Thank you for reading. This was inspired by @elleseng's piece REDACTED(the one she doesn't like lol)

The word formatting was inspired by the opening credit design from the 1958 horror/sci-fi movie The Trollenberg Terror(aka The Crawling Eye). I saw the movie 2 or 3 Saturday nights ago and felt that I had to format a poem along those lines(no pun intended). It's on Youtube.

Here's the layout design for the poem. A little serious planning went into this one.
