... but sometimes poets need to 'lay waste' to words in order to communicate depth of feeling

I love the discussion on poetry forms and styles here. It's fascinating how different structures can evoke varied emotions. On another note, if anyone is juggling writing with other commitments, you might find services to buy nursing essays helpful https://www.nursingpaper.com/ They can provide some breathing room for your creative projects

Look, Poetry grabbed me by the nape of my neck and dragged me into the bushes and pretty well had her way with me back when I was a kid in reform school, age 16. I found a number of poems so magical that little by little they became a part of me, memorized, repeated to myself as I hitchhiked back and forth across the country. e e cummings; frost; t.s. eliot; shelley; keats; a bit of Tennyson; ginsberg, darling Frank O'Hara. The list just keeps on a-goin'.

I read bc every now and then the poet says something which is so acutely on the effing mark that it enters into my dna and I take it with me forever more. And that includes a few poets I've found here. Think: Betty; Northern_Soul; Alviola; Wolfman. (And a number of others.)

I read to engage with the magic, with the primeval, the original grunts and groans and yowls and howls that first began to celebrate the paleolithic in art and utterance.

I mean...DUH. Why else would I spend so much of my time doing this if it weren't a really good substitute for sex? Hmmm?

I am something like four months shy of 80, btw, so my time draws nigh. Gotta fill it with beauty and magic.

That make any kind of sense to y'all?
