Comments about Is It Poetry
vscoster_poetry: I often dream I am reading, and writing, and never shut up. Which is why I always thought that whole "not reading in your sleep" thing was nonsense. But I guess it isn't.
kellianderson: This came up again. sensory knowledge vs social knowledge (what one can package-up with language/code/math and share with another person)
(the Venn diagram overlap between the two tho… ! It exists… and that's what makes art and poetry and delicious food and is the best)
parisreview: “My life is as simple as I can make it.” —Philip Larkin
davidknyc: Poetry in motion. Man, Jordan made basketball look so effortless. The Fadeaway jumper is literally unguardable if done the right way and he’s perfected it.
So many similarities in how he and Kobe continued to dominate with finesse over sheer athleticism late in their careers.

DrSamiSchalk: Students, friendly reminder that not all books are novels. A novel is a type of book, a long-length fictional story. Other types of books include short story collection, book of poetry, non-fiction, memoir, self-help, theory, textbook, etc. When in doubt, just call it a book.
megazeraora: chose to go with the visual art option for my poetry final! not really my usual style, but it'll do. i had to put some text from the poem itself on the image, so there are a few lines from my "selenian sonnet." and yes, it is alanna. it's called love ... look it up ...

universalpast: I by no means rank poetry or poets high in the scale of intellect—this may look like Affectation—but it is my real opinion—it is the lava of the imagination whose eruption prevents an earth-quake
— Lord Byron, November 29 1813.
gayratdemon: lowkey want to put all the leftist poetry i was hoping to get on my christmas wishlist but if my parents ask what it is about i will be screwed
genyassafin: By the shore of the sea stands a green oak tree;
Upon the tree is a golden chain:
And day and night a learned cat
Walks around and around on the chain;
When he goes to the right he sings a song,
When he goes to the left he tells a tale.
english literally killed all poetry in it
smnycntrst: unsaid poetry
I lowered my wall and let you in

In this world full of uncertainties,
I will keep choosing you and be stand still

raethebuilder: Once I get a bigger following with my poetry... I have so many ideas in my head. My writing is where my love & emotions are expressed the most. If I can share it with as much people as I can, I will feel complete with that creative part of me.
raaydedesi: In an agrarian society it is one thing to romanticize the fields of gold in your poetry, another to completely disregard the qualms of the soul of this nation.
agloomykid: it uses direct and simple language to describe clear images and let them convey the ideas. the way it works is literally incorporating visual art into literature, creating a painting through poetry, drawing with words instead of brushes. this could be of some use to him.

godlovesuglyk: Urdu poetry is so beautiful when it’s read in Urdu.
Some translations are better than others, but the beauty is mostly lost in all of them.
tiaralashawna_: i read Angels Speak Of Love like it’s proverbs. Bell Hooks really created such a beautiful collection of poetry and as an author- her books on love have always given me clarity. so hearing her poetic voice is mesmerizing.
there’s no other like her.
FinnLongman: The person in question isn't on Twitter, so I think I'm safe asking: they said "I like poetry that is modern and/or sad ond/or nature-oriented. Beats, Sylvia Plath, that kinda thing. Anyone except Rupi Kaur, I just don't get into it". Recommendations?

amita_nowal: He is a good poet and an amazing teacher. You all should come for the poetry session. It is for a good cause.
Jakujin: This is fun. I became addicted to alliteration translating Beowulf (although have essays where markers note my love of it). Found excuse in the Secret History of the Mongols, as the Mongol Poetry chapter notes. 'Also an embellishment in Mongol prose': which I fear I use overmuch.

Bits of your
To the birds...
bitchthirdofall: It’s literally just poetry vomit and prose and venting but like even that bullshit is....fire?
OutlawsPoetic: “The advantage of poetry over life is that poetry, if it is sharp enough, may last.”
madelynnotmadi: One of my favorite things about poetry is that it makes you realize that others have felt and feel and will feel the same things and have the same thoughts that you have. No one is alone, nothing is new. We are all floundering in emotions and words and it is beautiful
ssinb: Nothing says confidence and glamour like a classic red lipstick. If only the poetry can speak, it's pretty much likely will live as beauty and disaster. For the duende I radiated thru this black outfit is no joke. Indeed, nothing feels better than being in my skin. ✨
ilovekookielove: I was shocked because knowing his taste or music, BTS or Kpop in general is waayyy beyond his liking. Though I've been telling them about the boys getting into different genres. He was telling me of how great the lyrics is and how he sees it as a love letter in a form of poetry.
woobaccu5: I just realized it’s going to be hard coming back to modern sci-fi fantasy after reading the likes of Tolkien’s Silmarillion. The 7th book in the Mercy Thompson series is next in my queue, but I’ll need a detour to ease back into it. Time to find me some poetry and a biography!

jb061971: It is said that we campaign in poetry and govern in prose. Well, Biden campaigned in prose and now must govern in poetry. We need nothing short of poetry to take the country forward. The last 3 dem presidents governed in prose. JFK ran in poetry and governed in poetry.
ayeelliottmyguy: 12) meter in poetry doesn’t feel right. It feel white. I know it isn’t, but it feels like meter is for the naturally rhythmless trying to dance. To me, the best poets don’t need it.

brattyjade__: I'm finally receiving creative messages, my words are coming back to me and I love writing so much. It will never be for the likes, the attention.
Always for the visceral reaction I feel from what speaks from my soul..poetry is life. It is beauty..it is eternal.

The crossover is closed
Wherever they go,
It started without any effort
In the village town building
Surrey love work.
AbbyMCarney: but anytime I've ever attempted to nail down something specific about what I like it sounds like bad poetry. Sometimes, I've ambled into those hip brooklyn wine shops and felt so chummy with the recommender. I'm certain we are friends, they get me, THIS is the wine.

HandTBristol: Some oft-heard myths about comic poetry that irk me:
4. If your poem makes jokes about a serious issue, it is "normalising", "trivialising" or "condoning" it. It can't possibly, you know, be using satire precisely to make the point that the serious issue is bad.

MorrisParkNYPL: Winter is a time for sweaters, coats and hats. When snow falls the world is transformed. The dust on the ground is molded into whatever we choose to make it. Enjoy these works of poetry with a nice cup of hot chocolate.
I_Find_Planets: I have discovered a planet. It is watery and quick-witted. Something hides there, uselessly writing poetry about the past.

DomesticMarine: Occurred, NOT occurred, that is NOT the question, according "Equational Poetry," & Shakespeare, YOU see? "DEMONSTRATION" what's TO BE is unimportant to the heart that feels or through its inner door where it is HEARD or seen in dreams & "Picture Paintings!"
eliotfoundation: 'It is not from rules, or by cold-blooded imitation of style, that we learn to write: we learn by imitation indeed, but by a deeper imitation than is achieved by analysis of style.'

Yes, I'd love it if we made it
