poetry i do not like

thought invoker: a high school classmate’s poetry

I do not like poetry that has the words “I” and “you” in it. These words are too common. It’s poetry, for heaven’s sake! You’re supposed to express common ideas in uncommon ways! That’s the beauty in it! Language should be stretched, manipulated, turned around and upside down, and played with funny all over! If you ever write poetry, do not use the words ‘I’ and ‘you’ or I will bludgeon with you an American Heritage Dictionary. the kind with the poison tips..
