When I read poetry, which is often,
I think to myself that the poets are
really pulling a fast one over on the
rest of us because they never learned
to put coherent sentences and para-
graphs together and to follow a
thought through to it’s logical con-
clusion in a rational argument but
opted for nonsense line breaks and
word breaks in places other than
grammatically accepted syllables,
obscure images and language that
just pop into their heads or, in
fact, they know all about the ess-
entials of grammar and spelling
and coherent, meaningful, logical
writing growing out of critical
thinking but are called by a
different muse, an ancient one,
one that precedes all modern
grammar and therefore is the
language of the gods or demi-
gods or something or other in
between.
