I think everybody has come across those pieces..where they just don't click for them like they click for others. One person can say..that was so moving...and another person will be like, what the hell are you talking about. (I saw RealMs thread about a poem in question for her, but this way weighing on my mind before I entered that thread...some people already dropped good insight on the matter in her thread) I'm just being a bit more general. I find that so strange. I mean..I do think there is a beauty to that. Of course there is a beauty to that. If you over-simplify something...it loses something. I've wrote pieces before...where it's like..if somebody doesn't get this..I'm not explaining it b/c explaining it takes away from it. But at the same time..it's frusturating when you read those pieces that you aren't quite sure how to take them. It's like you're missing something that you don't want to miss...but then you understand that it loses some of its magic if you ask for a real world literal definition of it all. B/c part of poetry is seeing the world in a very different way. Not dumbing it down. I used to skim by pieces that I encountered like that..b/c I felt like I wouldn't get it so it was just wasting my time. But know I try to figure it out..understand it..it's almost like a koan..you've got to experience it and even then there is still no right answer except perhaps the one in the mind of the author. I'm just rambling..but it was just a thought I wanted to put out there.
