M. Stone : part two

Has your consideration of poetry changed since you began?

I didn’t start seriously writing poetry until college, and today, I think I’m much more flexible with myself regarding what constitutes a poem than I was when I was learning about form and meter. I primarily write free verse, and I’m reaching a point where I don’t feel like my poems are less than if they veer into narrative or confessional territory. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with poetry being accessible.
