Well, first, I have to admit that I'm not often a poet. I typically write poetry when I'm doing something else. Classwork, typically. When do you write poetry? What goal do you have when you write it? Do you think about structure when you write poetry? Are there any slam or performance poets out there. Do you have any recommendations for getting into that sort of thing? Any comments on poetry writing? I'm trying to cast as wide a net as possible here.
