Lightly Worn

"Lightly Worn" is a digital poem inspired by the famous six-word story that goes: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." This poem yearns to twist the classic tale a bit and give it new life and context. It combines Jing with Microsoft Excel to show rather than tell the story of one month in the life of a fictional family through an evolving spreadsheet.  You can experience the poem here.

Note: this poem is, by all accounts, a tragedy, and while it is intentionally ambiguous, it may be upsetting to some audiences.
