N.P. van Wyk Louw het 'n kort gedig van net twee verse geskryf. Sintakties is albei verse onvoltooid. Vers 1 is aan die begin van die gedig sintakties oop en vers 2 is aan die einde van die koeplet sintakties onvoltooi. Hierdie oop plekke aan die begin en einde van die koeplet laat die leser toe om die gedig in 'n haas eindelose aantal gedigte te vermenigvuldig.

N.P. van Wyk Louw wrote a short poem consisting of only two short verses. Syntactically both verses are incomplete, leaving open spaces at the beginning of verse 1 and at the end of verse 2. This allows the reader to fill in both open spaces in such a way that this single poem can be transformed into two, twenty and even more poems.
