phrase reversal

My newest song is again using multiple recitations of a poem that I wrote. I took one individual's reading and sliced it up everywhere she chose to pause (not line breaks, necessarily), and then rearranged the phrases from last to first. It was quite amazing what it did to the poem. It still made sense and at moments sounded better! Reversing all the words was next to impossible and didn't sound good, but the phrases worked pretty well.
This is fun.
