I enjoy a good " spasmodic" poem from time to time. There is a fine young slam poet, Anthony Blacksher, who performs his poetry and uses a few different styles in his poems. I mean, several styles in ONE poem. He's mindblowingly good. I enjoy his work a great deal. Brandon Cesmat is another poet/professor who breaks out in song right in the middle of one of his pieces. I find it, when done well, to be very effective.

I can't speak favorably about the writer in question at PH, beca use I haven't read a single poem of his that I've found to be well-written. If he's not publishing anywhere then it doesn't matter if he's bad. He obviously writes for only himself, and a small group of followers.
