Verse First ~ Difficulty
Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
(or why to avoid it in poetry)
"More often than not in poetry I find difficulty to be gratuitous and show-offy and camouflaging, experimental to a kind of insane degree--a difficulty which really ignores the possibility of having a sensible reader."
I could not more heartily agree with Mr. Collins! Your assignment should be clear. Write a poem, no more than three stanzas, that is completely free of "gratuitous, show-offy, camouflaging" text.
I look forward to reading your accessible, enlightening writing. ~ Kim
