A new poem designed specifically for the web, "Through the Lens" is a combination of images and text. Some even move across the screen thanks to parallax scrolling. This effect occurs when elements on a page move at different speeds as the user scrolls, normally with the foreground moving faster than the background.
The three images that move across the screen of the poem are three literal lenses: a pair of glasses, an umbrella, and a window. These lenses and the text provide the perspective of an adolescent developing generalized anxiety disorder.
