  • I think of a type of art that uses words and language as a medium.

  • Horrible crap.
    In one of my English classes in college we had to read books. Some where poetry. I could never understand it. I could never get the references and figure out all that shit. So the weeks we read poetry I just skipped it and took the E if we had a test that week. I hate it with all my being.

  • A form of expression that isn't prose, but is more melodic and laid bare. It focuses more on the language itself, for what it is and more importantly the effect it has and how it sounds when put together. It's beautiful and very therapeutic to both read and write :)

  • I think of hell. I'm not a huge fan of Literature, but I can deal with narrative to a certain extent. When it comes to poetry, however, I feel like offing myself so I don't have to read any fucking poetry.
