I've given poetry a go, getting mixed evaluations. An astute literary friend told me that my poems sucked being too blunt, that good poetry should be teasingly oblique; is childish if it rhymes; unimportant to be about anything reasonable. (a la MacLeish's Ars Poetica) I remember paintings done by chimps splattering colors randomly like a Pollock. "Zim zung zang, blah blah..." I can do the same with sounds, I suppose, naming it Dadaist poetry; (nothing unique about that); let a machine randomize verbs, nouns, articles with conjunctions; & let consciousness float wherever. Etc... ew. I'll try something innovative: rhyme and reason, with a smidgen of signature flavor. If it sux, it sux. LOL -- I'll start a new genre: Suxor Poetry.
