Hyperspace by Christian Ward

Would this poem be an example of the use of enjambment?  If so, it's uses the technique better than a lot of other recent poems I've seen.

The breaking of the sentences between lines gives the poem a slightly disconcerting feel without making it unduly choppy.  Many I've seen have the sentences and phrases broken up between the lines in a seemingly willy-nilly fashion, resulting in a very choppy poem.

I think the technique works well here, adding a bit more depth to the feel of the work.
