One of the (many) reasons why I gave up sbntimtiug my poems to magazines was that when I did get an acceptance, the choice would be for the poem I'd included as filler rather than for the poem I wanted to see published.Truth is I don't read my poems the way other people read them. I know what my poems are supposed to be saying whereas the casual browser doesn't have such luxury. The poems I think are my best are the ones where I've worked in 2 or 3 layers of meaning/interpretation which work well for me, but which rarely work for the reader because they only spend enough time with the poem to get the surface meaning (if that).One of my most important poems (for me, anyway) has never been commented on in any detail, despite being posted to various fora and newsgroups. I assume it's because people are nervous of the content rather than because it's poorly written or just not likeable.I enjoyed Revelations on erato. I thought it was strange so many commenters are already trying to rank the selected poems. But it's nice to see poems being selected on their own merits, rather than on the hierarchical importance of the author.Today's verification: moodz.
