Poetics and Poetry Discussion

Incidentally, Rich Hanson, who has recently withdrawn from the site but may (hallo, Rich....) be dropping in from time to time, writes serious, researched poetry in leisure hours between family, ball-games, poetry readings and overseeing a slaughter-house... no stereotypes there!

Thanks for the response, Raynette (who I note, has thrived on poemhunter so far?) ... for me it is a well-presented 'slice of real life' which, though I wouldn't be up to it myself unless raised to it, carries a welcome sense of truth, in poetry. I'd call it a poem which does what it sets out to do, and rather effectively.
I was/am hoping to draw the contributors to this potentially serious (!) forum who have strong views about poetry, as well as the rest of us who 'know what we like' and hope to progress from that!
