This is the override code for the Tear Duct Control System.

The code uses additional security protection, and must be entered exactly. The code is case-sensitive, line break-senstitive, and font-sensitive.

Typing in the code correctly will override the wall controls of the Tear Ducts, and allow the water to flow from your eyes unobstructed.

I am sure I am not the first, but it is quite interesting to note that I have accidentally stumbled upon a different form of poetry. This is "a poem within a poem". The main poem is entitled "The Tear Duct Override Code". And within the poem is another smaller poem, "Snail Mail From Jail", which is the override code itself. The smaller poem (the intra) can exist independently, while the main poem (the extra) cannot exist, or at least cannot properly convey its message, without the intra.

Wow, I sound so scholarly. Chos.

Most of your bests come out when you use the path of the code. Likened to women, these compositions of yours are very fuckable! :) i like!

it is the style that i like most in your poetry. it does not seek to delve into the depths of egohood rather it gives you the subtle mechanisms of "Being" which i think is a very apt read/activity for our times. It is both simple and grand altogether wherein Everything naturally is. Hypnotically meditative! :) i'm a fan!
as an ender, id like to quote a faux German by saying "More Power!"
