I'm probably a day late and a dollar short here but I suspect the primary value in pursuing poetry is mostly that it has always been the least expensive and most available form of psychotherapy. You can see that at work whenever you read Shakespeare, and others, who all lived and worked long before Freud and the psychiatric community came along. Any literary embellishment that helps an author be heard is its own reward.

Poetry is ever changing and evolving, if social media vanished,  then speakeasy type places would pop up. Or fire side spoken words.

In the beginning there was word
In the end there is no end

I'd be game, if my Scouse/Welsh twang can be understood

Well,nowadays a little percent of people like poetry. So by communicating on an online media for poetry with people who actually like poetry, we can share our poems and someone would actually care. Most people I know in real life find poetry boring.
