I’m not much of a poet; in fact, I would venture to say that I’m not a poet at all.

Poetry is not a natural way for me to express my emotions and moreover, I’m old-fashioned when it comes to poetry: I like meter and rhyme and structure and form. But I do occasionally scribble things down in verse, usually when I simply cannot write about my feelings as I normally do: in prose, in a journal, and by hand. I am literal and I am concrete, but sometimes poetry with all its abstractness is a better outlet. It’s not often, but it happens. Occasionally.

This section is a collection of fragments of thoughts. Poetry bores me, so I don’t expect anyone to care, but I figure I ought to keep a record of this somewhere.
