Endstopped vs enjambed lines (ie line breaks)

Hey friends,

I've uploaded a rough draft of an essay I prepared for my MFA (that I later found out I didn't need to complete). It's about the use of endstopped lines (lines that end with a period) vs enjambed lines (run over into the next line) and how these can affect the reader.

Enjoy the poems, and hope you learn something!
