Story Notes:

This is a poem that is meant to be read two ways. Firstly, read the first horizontal line left to right, the second right to left, the third left to right again and so on, so it snaked around. The second way to read it is vertically top to bottom from left to right.

The punctuation is lacking on purpose, so it is ambiguous enough to actually work. It may take a few times before it makes any appreciable sense, but I am quite proud of this.
