“If your interested in knowing why Americans are not interested in poetry, this is the reason. A great disservice to those of us incapable of writing such an art form, yet yearning to understand the complex art of the ancient wordsmiths of human culture. When a expert professor explains “You know” and fillers with “So ...” who can not think: If I knew I wouldn’t be listening to this...and especially to you.”
A podcast of confirmation bias.
I have canceled my subscription to “Poetry” magazine with many poems that sound like prose, and when mortal time permitting, I read a great poem in text. Although, I have read some very moving poems in that well intentioned journal. Sad, is the mismatch of mission and message.
My advice to the time restrained, busy lovers of poetry seeking inspiration: use unforgiving Time well and read a good poem.”
