      You know what's kind of drunken?

      If I had posted this in here, it would have been merely regarded as bad poetry. But even in SB it gets locked. Discuss.

      I actually kind of had a serious discussion in mind about this but I'm going to wait until the morning to clarify it. I'm tired.

      I seem to be very good with automatically interpreting metaphors as I read them, and I actually found it to be alright. It's not what you'd think on the outside, as most good poems are.

      Like this poem:

      so much depends
      upon

      a red wheel
      barrow

      glazed with rain
      water

      beside the white
      chickens.


      There's obviously some metaphors in there relating to a much larger concept. A lot of poems that I truly enjoy do this.

      I encourage you to keep it up.

      See, that's exactly the sort of thing I mean. It's like Autechre; when does the poetry stop and the noise begin? I can't figure it out anymore.

      One man's noise is another man's poetry.
      It is a fine line.
      It's like there's really no concrete definition of what art is right?
      You could say this is a poem "I took a crap and then ate more."
      Totally random sentence but if you wanted you could try and desperately interpret it.
      "Well the simplicity of the poem's vocabulary is to show how the common man thinks. It shows the common man's thought process. We use X once we are -X we get more X. Human beings are merely animals."
      So the only basis I use to criticize poetry if is I liked the poem myself, OR if I see the writer put time into it and it was personal to them.
      That's just what I think.
