What is Poetry? By definition it is
an arrangement of words expressing
feelings and ideas.
But no matter
what you write, or with what
meaning you write them, someone
else is going to pull It, twist it, push it, and tear it
to mean something else. They will analyze
of every Comma and capitalized letter and draw
conclusions and interpretations out
of it until there is Nothing left of it.
They will criticize the form, the style, the rhyme scheme,
and the shape of each line and stanza. They
will Hate it until they melt it to represent
what is convenient for them, and then they will praise you as a Genius
and extol your work. So no matter what you write
it will create meaning for someone, whether you want to or not,
so everything is Poetry and everyone is a Poet.
