Poetry and a Poet’s World

Poetry may not be ostentatious enough for many. The serious metaphors may weigh too heavily on the prevailing thoughts. A middling narrative has become so prominent and accepted that one cannot penetrate or break into the complexities.

On Reading

Predominantly, reading as become an amusement; the purpose and quality of a literary work are rarely discussed seriously.
