Indents or centre-justification really ought to have some rationale, and I’d extend that to those poems that roam freely about the whiteness.

The poet who takes that journey is assuming control of the whiteness, presuming a considerable amount of power, which also means advancing to the foreground of the poem’s frame. We can see you, be aware of that.

— Glyn Maxwell, On Poetry.
