8 Reasons Why I Hate Poetry

  1. It’s too short.
  2. Or it’s too long.
  3. It’s too fancy.
  4. Or it’s just words broken up into weird lines for no good reason.
  5. No dialogue.
  6. No narrative.
  7. No wizards, no space ships, no mystery-solving medieval monks.
  8. Performance poets. All of them.
