The Size of Visual Poetry

Mick Boyle sent me, via email, a tiny little visual poem that seems to be about itself. Or maybe not.

Mick Boyle, "Estrangement at the seventh precipice" (12 Mar 2005)

But think about it. The poem seems to read 7kb, the possible size of a small textual image. At the very least, it is an example of the steady use of the printer's fist. Mick, being a designer, has a good grasp on this skill.
