There are fab creative commons who send you mail about a poem they thought was good but could be better one way or another as they suggest. Then there are assholes who edit your whole poem and post it to you. Others just say crap about rhymes and superfluous words to make your poem ‘deep’. Shit! Its like you cant rhyme if you wanted to.
There are times I like my poetry raw and angry or downright obscene. There are rare occasions I want to rhyme and all the shit critics claim to be ‘true poetry’. Most of the time I just want to express with words what touches me.
And some asshole comes along to tell me how to speak what I feel? Fuck you if you aint a teacher but consider yourself a poetry critic.
