    How compatible they can be when they're in a genial mood! Poetry starts off with a generous statement of common
    presence in the world of communication. But I think Prose goes way off kilter saying they are one (!) . In fact, I think Prose's ALL IN ONE statement muddies the water, because people will expect poetry to be immediately understood and accessible like prose and that's dangerous - for Poetry.
