    why i wanna to be a real poet

    i want to be a real poet so i can be
    deep.. dark.. and profound

    so that no one will know what im talking about
    but in fear of being called stupid
    they will label me instead..
    deeply poetically symbolic and complexed

    i wanna be a real poet
    so i dont have to be happy

    i would be angry,bummed out
    bewildered...and sensitive
    alcoholic,drug addicted,concavely
    convicted and seriously conflicted

    so i can character assassinate
    other fellow poets
    belonging to other clicks other than my own
    while at the same time
    signing my newest poetry book
    "blueprint for unity"

    i wanna be a real poet

    so i can participate in poetry forums
    and be able to use words like
    allegory,beat,flow,prose,and cadence
    form,homograph,lyric,metaphor...onomatopoeia

    but unfortunately i dont know what im talking about
    so i quessi wont be a real poet after all.....
    :darts:
    hookup.... :thinking:

    Noting a bit of sarcasm...This seems, to me, like a clever way of starting a discussion about what we feel poetry is, and is not. Is it an expression of feelings? Does it have to have a certain structure, and rhyme scheme to qualify? Or is any "flow" poetry, with some pieces being viewed more so as art, because of their form? At any rate, I can appreciate the vibe.

    Loved this piece.
    Touched a man in several ways
    showing a lot of the reasons why one
    might be/is attracted to poetry.
    Thanx for reminding me of my love for poetry.
    Thanx for this.

    This was so hillarious...
    it reminded me a few poets in my spoken word group
    and it just made me laugh even harder...
    I love your humor and the spin you so cleverly
    put on the entertaining aspect of performance art
    Being too serious can be bad for your health...:zipit:

    You're such an incredible writer...
    Great writing and comedic poetry all in one!
    The sign of a High IQ...*winks* :terrific:

    Seriously...I enjoyed the read and the laugh!

    this was not what u think ...this was meant to be funny...a look at poets who think they are so deep they cant enjoy the art form....and no any old flow is not poetry....if your words cant make the reader feel what your meaning is then the flow is off...yes its a expression of feelings sista watzinananame.....your right (and by the way i love your work .) :thinking: ....but if a poet is just writing words down with no meaning behind them no direction...no feeling then is hurts the art forum....but ...thats how i feel ...others may feel different.. but if u really love poetry and u know your a good poet what im saying will not offend u..hookup

    Thanks for clearing that up, Hookup, but since I have no problem with a bit of sarcasm, not implying that I tend to be sarcastic of course, I liked the piece anyway. We did somehow have that conversation about poetry anyway though, it seems...there goes that sarcasm again. Anywho, I enjoy your poetry as well, you're a gifted writer. Definitely, no offense taken.
