Well, Adam Snow, no one's going to stop you! Keep on whittling if it gives you pleasure! it doesn't give me any. You might ask yourself why you're writing. Fishing for approval?Hoping for ego-strokes?I have little patience for " poets" who know nothing about their craft, as if ignorance of one's art form is a virtue. It's not.

    Ignorance is art. Think about how many great things were made throughout history because someone wanted to show off or get noticed. Dont call people ignorant when you have some ignorance too.

      Carlos, I can't begin to tell you how stoopid this COMMENT is. Ignorance is NOT good art. It's never a virtue.
