    Peter, it's not a matter of right or wrong; it's a matter of clarifying our terms so we can have a discussion, not wave at each other from the decks of two ships passing in the night. A single definition of poetry is NOT possible; various permutations of a definition are. I have lots of definitions of " poetry" —little machines made of words, the best words in the best order, deep gossip, etc., etc. I only have ONE definition of verse: writing that is organized by lines and stanzas.

    Peter, we want your reply by midnight. Period. Your 'work-week' is not our concern. We need to keep this train on schedule.
