This article seeks to engage debates about integrating pluralists regarding multiole forms/representations and how they might function smoothly if they are closely aligned. This article offers, narrative poetry with an artistic impression aimed at seeing how these might interact with each other. Like poetry, visual images are unique and can evoke particular kinds of emotional and visceral responses. By offering narrative poetry together with an artistic representation it is not meant to devalue the importance of either, but it is aimed at seeing how these arts-based methods and creative analytical practices might unite as a narrative to offer new ways of "knowing" and "seeing."
