A Turn in the Conversation


Well, I have been rereading my previous posts and I feel a little like you sometimes do at a party when some poor innocent stranger asks what you do and, in your enthusiasm, you talk their ear off until that blessed point (from their point of view) when you suddenly notice the glazed look on their face and you turn the conversation to them (this also allows you to take a bite of your canape or a sip from your drink: enlightened self-interest).

So I know the things I would like to talk about in this blog and I have a list of other things I want to cover eventually, but here is a question for you, O GENTLE READERS: What questions do you have about poetry? What topics make you curious or annoyed? What forms are you interested in? What poets have you read? What kind of poets would you like me to recommend (or warn you about)?

Let me know in the comments section, and I will squeeze in requests between my small, humble, illustrated rants.
