Alex Manley : part four

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

I feel like one of the best attributes of film as a medium is the existence of the montage technique, and I think poetry is the closest thing writing has to a montage technique. Being able to juxtapose seemingly unrelated or even nearly incoherent concepts with each other is something that’s simply not done in other forms of writing. In poetry it’s not just normal, it’s expected; it’s wished for. There is so much beauty in throwing two things together and seeing what happens next.
