A Time for Poetics 1

I appreciate words of praise about any poem of mine these days more from persons who know nothing much about poetry than those who think they know a lot. There’s a time, it’s been said. A time for communing and a time for learning. A time for living and a time for workshops. A time for people and a time for poets.

PS Sometimes it’s a time to listen to other poets answer questions from another poet to hear some wiser words than mine. Oh, and mine as well.

Every time I read other people's answers to these 10 questions, I find myself thinking, "I wish I'd thought of saying that." But that's part of what's so interesting about it.
