Matthew Lovegrove : part four

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

Poetry has offered me an interesting freedom from the limitations of songwriting. For one thing, I don’t have to think about melodies and song structure, which takes some energy. Thematically, I feel much freer to explore absurd, humourous, and political themes in poetry – it’s this thematic freedom that has been really creatively reinvigorating.
