Poetics and Poetry Discussion

Hi Angela, just to say about poems to me. There are two kinds, only two kinds, of poems in all
the world. Just two. They are the ones you deem worthy to keep, or to go on living, and the ones
you condemn back to the nothingness it came from, and decided, it belongs. Just two. I wrote
'after all' in less than 10 minutes, cause someone on another site, not a poetry site, asked the
readers to submit a poem. I thought, hmm, I've been known to pen a few poems, let's see what
happens. And with virtually no thought to an idea, or anything, I pushed that poem into existence
whether it liked it or not. It was obviously a keeper, I didn't fret about how simple, and trite, and
cliche it was. It was worthy to be saved in my opinion. Now if any of these other great minds
had written the same exact poem, they would have obviously thrown it away. How sad. Cause
I would have liked it. Lyn

I used to always say when you post a poem in the forum, expect a greater degree of criticism, and from people who may not be as sympathetic as readers who seek out your personal poetry page. -LP
