Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark

from my window
     I can see
a huge hill,
upon which is a girl('s house),
     who I dated for almost
4 weeks.
she had 3
       glass eyes,
(one was a spare)
and it used to amuse me
to hold her nose
      when she sneezed-
so her eyes would pop out.
       the novelty wore off when,
one winter's night,
my dog caught one and
                                                         ran off.
nice girl though.

Nice poem, however, the line breaks and obscure spacings, although interesting, seem random and without purpose.

you and your damn 'found poem's inuki, why dont you try writing something for yourself every now and then?
 — unknown

Excuse me, unknown..

"why dont you try writing something for yourself every now and then?" excuse me! i 30 poems on this site that I wrote myself. This is only my second found poem.

If you don't like it, you don't have to read it. Plain and simple.

This one is really cool.
I am curious about your choice of spacing, but I'm not against it.  It was simply a little scattered for my taste.  I felt I was all over to find out about what the dog did.  Maybe you could reformat??
Very good considering it is a "found poem".  Nice job.
