To the people who write poetry: why do you do it? Also, do you keep it private or share it? When did you get good? I just wrote a crappy first poem recently and it really helped me understand me emotions.

I haven't written poetry in a long time but when I did it was because I liked reading poetry. I felt like writing it helped me process my emotions like you mentioned. it's kind of like drawing or journaling I guess. I liked to share my poetry but for some people it's too personal. I still never got good at poetry so I can't answer that lol but also there are different styles of poetry.

IDK the name of this one, but the author's name is on the pic. I found it after watching Oldboy and googling the first part bc it sounded so cool to me, but then I ended up liking the whole poem.

Easter Bunny
by Mary Brandolino

In memory of all the bunnies we couldn't save

I remember Easter Sunday
It was colorful and fun
The new life that I'd begun
In my new cage.

I was just a little thing
When they brought me from the store
And they put me on the floor
In my cage.

They would take me out to play
Love and pet me all the time
Then at day's end I would climb
In my cage.

But as days and weeks went by
I saw less of them it seemed
Of their loving touch I dreamed
In my cage.

In the night outside their house
I felt sad and so neglected
Often scared and unprotected
In my cage.

In the dry or rainy weather
Sometimes hotter sometimes colder
I just sat there growing older
In my cage.

The cat and dog raced by me
Playing with each other only
While I sat there feeling lonely
In my cage.

Upon the fresh green grass
Children skipped and laughed all day
I could only watch them play
From my cage.

They used to take me out
And let me scamper in the sun
I no longer get to run
In my cage.

Once a cute and cuddly bunny
Like a little ball of cotton
Now I'm grown up and forgotten
In my cage.

I don't know what went wrong
At the home I did inhabit
I just grew to be a rabbit
In my cage.

But they've brought me to the pound
I was once loved and enjoyed
Now I wait to be destroyed
In my cage.

I'm at my wits' end trying to find this poem. It's about gay sex and one of the lines is something like "why don't you swallow? was it something i ate?"

Anyone know what I'm talking about? I saw it on LJ in the mid-2000s when someone posted it, and I think it may have been published in some anthology.

I have this problem too, anon. I actually have a harder time getting into non-rhyming poetry because I feel if I delete all the line breaks, it doesn't have as good a cadence as rhyming poetry does.

I read Richard Siken's two books and while I like his poetry, he had one prose work in that book and TBH it read almost exactly as his poems. I felt a bit disappointed.

IMO some poets like Christina Rossetti or AE Housman just hit different. I understand how they're considered poetry and admired for their musicality, but I kind of don't get how non-rhyming musical poetry is different from regular wonky prose.

Not a bash on interesting prose; I read it, but I don't get the nuance (yet).

I mean there is a lot of theory on what makes a poem. For the imagists, it was concision of language, sharp images, and classical aesthetic. H.D is the go to for that stuff. It also useful to note that the imagists came of age with the popularisation of photography, which probably had a huge effect on literature.

diff anon but Hilda Doolittle! She was from wiki: "an American poet, novelist, and memoirist, associated with the early 20th-century avant-garde Imagist group of poets, including Ezra Pound and Richard Aldington."

No. 173015

>>172781
>>172875

Yeah, that's her. Hilda Doolittle, she published her poems under her initials. I think she was America's best modernist.

There's also the New York School whose poetic subject was slice-of-life and they tried to write in the voice of the conversations of the gay MoMA crowd.

I'm just saying to find which poems click with you and start from there.
