My poems tend always towards the abstract end of the spectrum. What is the point of writing "straight" linear poetry? That is what prose is for. I try to evoke a vague sense of mood or emotion rather than to convey a concise message. It is art after all, right?

It is art, yes, write my friend. :)

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
