This found poem was made with the conversation between the two lovers in the story “Button Button”. In the story, Norma and her husband Arthur have an argument about the mysterious button that Mr. Steward had given them. If they press the button, someone they don’t know dies, but they receive 50,000 dollars. This argument is the first “crack” in their relationship, and by highlighting the main parts of their conversation, I helped to show how Norma’s curiosity clashed against Arthur’s cautiousness.

I tried not to add any color or decoration to the poem as I felt that the story had a very tense feeling to it, and in their argument, there were two main emotions: Curiosity and cautiousness, which is why under parts of the dialogue that Norma said, I added some brighter colors. But with Arthur, the color is plain black and it’s the same as the background.
