Ah, I love it when the dreck-meisters band together and praise each other's ignorant comments. Look, guys, poetry is an art form, not just a pouring out of your wonderfully unique selves onto the page; that's called sewage. Neither one of you has the foggiest idea about good contemporary poetry. You're imitating, badly, late 19th-century magazine verse or the insipid poems you half-learned in high school. I don't expect you to appreciate my poetry; in fact, I'd worry about my poems' quality if either of you praised them. So thanks for that much. I'll leave you with an axiom you should take to heart: ignorance is NOT a poetic virtue.
