“The Gravel Pit” by M. Travis Lane

M. Travis Lane’s poem The Gravel Pit (below) is an example of concrete form in free-verse poetry. Under her poem in the “Questions and Answers” section at CanLit Poets, Lane calls The Gravel Pit

a concrete poem: a poem which primarily exists to be seen, as print on a page, as a sort of picture with words instead of drawings. (n. pag.)

These observations connect her poem to more experimental forms of visual poetry, while also maintaining a lyrical and descriptive quality.
