All I’ve ever done in this blog is post poems, and I have said nothing directly, but today I have questions. Since I am in my second year of going to school for poetry, I want to know what most people think of poetry. I’m sure a lot of you don’t write or read many poems, most people don’t. So what do you think poetry is? What’s poetry for? Why do you read poems or heck, why don’t you read poems? Why would anyone write poems? Are poems worth a damn? What makes a poem worth a damn? Are poems dying? I would love to hear what anybody thinks about any of this. I write poems, and I go to school to keep doing this and many of my friends now do the very same, so I’m curious of the general consensus about poems from people who aren’t going to school for poems. This will also serve as a way of seeing if anyone actually reads this blog. It makes me nervous.
