Poetry is like chocolate. Sometimes it is too sweet, sometimes too bitter, sometimes too hard, sometimes melted and sticky and irritating. Oh but when it is just right it fills your mouth fully with a sweet richness that satisfies the soul.
~Eve Kneeland

o1spic6newshSpeaking with some people on their idea of what poetry means to them, blank stares greeted me as I awaited an answer. Often when that same question is brought up, the response is a usual, “do people read or even like poetry anymore?”
