Thoughts on Robbinson Jeffers' Poem
I read a poem today by a real poet
one of those famous ones whose name
everybody knows and says, oh yeah, I’ve
heard of him. The first time I read the
poem I thought of what a cool thing to
write about and what a cool take on the subject
Then I looked at the poem and thought
of my friend who wants commas everywhere.
She would hate that poem. Of course then
a bunch of people would say I don’t know
about poetry and I’m not sure I understand this poem
but if they read the poem again and paid attention
to the words and didn’t try to get all weird about it
I think would really like this poem I read today.
