Explaining Poetry

In explaining one of her poems,
the poet said that one of her goals
was to dispel the idea that poetry
is hard to understand and therefore
mainly for the intellectual elite
and highly educated. Perhaps one of
the reasons she explained her poem
was that it was hard to understand
and presumably took a highly educated
person to understand it without
said explanation.
