"how must i change myself, before it's too late? what should i do to be a real poet?"

shut the fuck up with all the analyzing and start writing and reading.
then read and write some more.

god the time you waste.

its like you are purposefully asking all these pseudo anallytical questions in order to avoid actually writing a poem.

get on with it for gods sake.

man you live in a fucking dream world

stop being all absorbed with yourself
and get to work
get a job
get drunk
do something that doesn;'t have to do with your questions about sexuality.

everything is not about you and sex and you

if you take up with the rest of the world by god the sex part works itself out

i'm not wasting yours though, because you're not really here. and, today, i'm feeling really sick, and can't play HAHA with you.

i only, only, write when i'm supposed to write. that's why my poems are the only poems i write.

read my poetry.

i'm a poet. dream world is walkabout world: how i see you and what you look like when you're naked: each of your rap verse rhyme cliks is like a curtain rod on a shower curtain. behind plastic curtain is just the skinny white kid trying to make a big shadow.

to recover the thread. are insult and responsibility the true topics of poetry? i do that, but only when i'm whining. what about you? what do you write that's real? or, who are your favorite poets.

We all gaze into the waters and imagine that reality is the sum total of our reflection.
Good thread Mike.

and, obviously, i'm actively engaged in life. just my examples and images would show anyone that i've been around and really only exist between the inner and outer world. supposing though, that i were this sissy creep they say i am? my poetry is good and is written for a universal audience. that's proven. what then, would it matter that the boys here didn't like my attitude or writing? to me, a lot, because we all learn that writing is not natural... especially not natural for poets, or we'd just write like we talk and never make poetry. we'd be tom clancy or something... reading experience only in other tom clancy type books. and the critiques i get here, from these guys... and their complaiint: and i'm looking at my stuff, at the comments, and they're really mostly mean... from the first. petty and mean... "A" in english class students, who've been taught that a poem is about "morality" and "being nice to other's" and "i have hair under my arms now, it's freaky".... and they learned how to spell. and they cling to this one truth: it is spelled, to protect themselves from the smart people around them who want to steal their precious.

but, suppose i'm just boring for most readers? sometimes, in some places, that's the truth. what's my responsibility to that audience? suicide?
