    Despite the obvious influx of senseless knob-jockeys,
    I will not be leaving.
    The pathetic attempts to attack the usual suspects,
    is suspicious enough to devalue their effect.
    The content and historical knowledge gives away the possible identities of the trolls,
    as most of the original postings were regularly deleted by the attackee

    any ideas on how we could resume discussions on Poetry?.

    Hey, PHers, in case you've forgotten, because of all the raving a**hole trolls on the forum, what a stimulating, adult conversation about poetic matters sounds like, here's a recent exchange I had with a friend on FB. We on PH could do this too, don't you think?

    Mark Weiss: Jefferson, I don't mind your quirk about this (defining poetry vs. prose) . Myself, that the edges of written modes are blurry doesn't keep me up nights.

    Mark Weiss: But it (defining poetry and prose) does seem like a rear-guard action. Arabs also distinguish between poetry and prose.

    Jefferson Carter: Mark, I'm not beating a dead horse here. I'd like to KNOW, for my own curiosity, how Arab writers would distinguish prose from poetry. Do you know?

    I don't mind those blurry edges either; I just don't want to hear any more " critics" blurt " THAT'S NOT A POEM, that's prose! " Or hear another attack on the poets Philip Levine or Stephen Dunn for writing " prose, not poetry."

    Mark Weiss: Classical Arabic poetry is rigidly metered and rhymed. Rhymed prose is rhymed at the end of sentences. Here's a great site for classical Arabic poetry. Click on a poet and you get a recording. You can also see a translation. It; s clearly rhymed and metered. https: //

    Rizzo, I'll respond up here so it doesn't get deleted. I see Delilah's work as I would an abstract painter's, only she works with words, not oils and a canvas. (She may not agree, which is fine) , but I think that's how one should approach her poetry.You have your realists (Carter, Hogg, etc.) and then you have your impressionists (Delilah, Dog God 8ate, etc.) . All are very good at their own styles.

    so...if to play with yourself publicly has been your dream, it must now be realized....
    you have your own site, peopled by you....
    poor critter....when you find yourself too obnoxious to be around, at all, just as we here have done, will the rest of the " you- crew" mutiny and kill the head...and that'll be that?

      READ, read, read, the best contemporary poets. It's art form, not just self-expression. Reading good poetry by others will guide and inspire you. If you want a list, I'll send you one. JC
