to anne: i didn't say it, Charles Bukowski did. i do agree with him though...just like many other terms, there are multiple definitions for poetry. one says 'prose with poetic qualities.' and another says 'the art or craft of writing verse'...you see, it's really up to the writer if they want to consider their words prose or poetry. if they call it a poem, then to them, it is a poem and to them that is all it should matter. and for those who read: shouldn't it be the written words that are important, rather than their literary title?
