Tyler Pufpaff : part three

What do you feel poetry can accomplish what other forms can’t?

Everything is poetry. That email, the fiction book you’re reading, the news, a word, a tree. I feel as though it’s like the relationship between a square and a rectangle. Everything is poetry, but poetry is not everything.

Seeing it this way, I believe that poetry can not accomplish what other forms can. If it could, wouldn’t we all just write poetry instead? I see other forms as poetic variations. Denying standard conventions, I instead focus on what the author said and how they’re trying to say it; I don’t care about “normal”.
