The Field of Words

I completed the principal printing for my contribution to the Sonnets 2016 project on the weekend. I reasoned that, given that the words are to be crammed up inside a library catalogue drawer together soon, they needed to air out in the sunlight, so I filled every last corner of the office floor with drying words.

Next step: sort everything into sonnet-wise order. Like Twister, but with Whence and Thou.

And endless are the modes of speech, and far
Extends from side to side the field of words.

Now this--this I really dig. Is there a spot where one may peruse the final product?
