Has your consideration of poetry changed since you began?
It definitely has. Exploring and experimenting with different kinds of poetry is incredibly important to the development of any poet. Once you find your “voice”, once you start to write your best poems, I think you have to find a way to mess with the process. If you don’t keep trying new things, you’ll eventually just start to parrot your old work. Trying new topics, new forms, new rules or zero rules, can twist the tether of your work in fascinating ways.
