Poets are a bunch of Loonies, stop giving us credit!

My Poetry teacher at college thinks that most 20th century poets were brilliant and wrote very thoughtfully and methodically about their thoughts, most of which are so obscure you have to read at a snail's pace to make head or tail out of a firehose.

I argue that most of the poetry I write is in a moment's random crazy inspiration and usually not all the lines are written to make sense. Many are just as cryptic and mysterious to me as they might be to a reader.

Since most 20th century poets were high when they wrote, I'm sure they would feel the same.

Which makes me laugh at poetry analysis. Ha. ha. ha.
