Like the Shostakovich Fugue No 19 in Eb Major, I decided to put my phrase in 5/4 time. But instead of selecting a major key I decided to go with F minor. I used similar rhythmic patters but decided to add more eighth notes. I used similar melodic contour and distance and the almost canonic feeling in the left and right hand voices. I broke the rules again by making the last two measures sound almost tonal.
