Nice quote; maybe the same could be said of analysing a poem (to death). After all, poetry (in my reckoning) is more an emotional experience than an intellectual exercise.

When I first joined DU I got the 'strange creature' label (as does every newcomer) and wondered what it was all about. It's part of a ranking system for how much actvity one does (and/or has accumulated, not sure) on DUP.
DUP (via the help button asking about 'rankings') offers the following explanation:


"User ranks are a way to determine which members are the most active on Deep Underground Poetry. You can improve your rank by posting on the website. This includes publishing your poems, commenting on other peoples' poems and participating in the forums. Your rank doesn't affect the functionality of the website.

The ranks are as follows :
Tyrant of Words (Highest Activity)
Dangerous Mind
Fire of Insight
Thought Provoker
Twisted Dreamer
Lost Thinker
Strange Creature (Lowest Activity)

The Guardian of Shadows rank is for moderators."


And welcome to DUP. Best regards, Josh.

“human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”  (Gabriel García Márquez, from his novel "Love in a Time of Cholera")
