poetry, the writing process, writing

Things that I do not like to see in poems, some of which I have used in my own poems, thus paving the way for both self-contempt and creative crisis:

  • Questions
  • Rhetorical questions
  • Epigrams
  • Definitions quoted directly from dictionaries
  • References to poets and/or poetry
  • References to the poet themselves as a poet
  • Polemic
  • Ekphrasis that relies too heavily upon familiarity with the art being written about
  • Epigrams that are rhetorical questions
