hello! here you will find a small rambling segment of my odd inner monologue:
the thing i love about free verse is that when fragments - or even just words, for that matter - are taken out of the context of a whole, entire sentence, they suddenly gain all this freedom, all these different nuances and shades of meaning that make poetry so beautiful - the fact that each reader brings something new any poem they read. so, whatever your thoughts on what you read, thank you for taking the time to see it, and bringing your experiences with you.
cheers!
