    I would go further. Some well-acclaimed contemporary poetry seems to me to be striving to be clever, for example as if the poet has entered a competition to stuff as many unusual metaphors and similes as possible into a given number of lines. I don’t even call that good.

      Me neither. It’s just becomes a convoluted pointless mess and the reason why poetry is so often misunderstood. What’s the point in writing something that nobody will understand?

    Brilliant. “What’s the point in writing something that nobody will understand?” Amen. I pray my work is at least understood…even if it is not the most technical or seems amateur…..I just want my heart to always come through. Love this Hernan.
