       So what is the point of poetry exactly? I guess it depends on the person. At first I thought it was about expressing yourself, then later I thought it was about convincing others of your own beliefs. No reason it can't be both I suppose.

    Recently a friend suggested it had to do with simply "playing with words". The idea of poetry being some sort of game seemed preposterous to me at the time. I tried writing a piece with no real message just a goal of using big words. It was fun, and did change the writing experience into more of a game.

    So I tried again, new goal though. Now it was to see if I could take a famous line, something that sits in the collective consciousness of pop culture, and massacre it to give it a different meaning. I did alright... I think.

    Mercutio walks strange parts of Verona,
    Looking to see his friend’s new romantic “one”
    He asks a stranger where this girl lives; they say,
    Oh, in “the east, and Juliet is the son

      i like what you did there.

    im appreciative of the explaination behind this piece otherwise i possibly wouldnt have appreciated it quite so much and just assumed you were 14yrs old and studying Shakespeare in english class at school.

    you most certainly mangled and massacred the main idea of this love affair in four short lines.
    mercutio was always my favourite somehow so its quite perfect you chose him as the main character of your mutation.

    juliet is the son... i will never veiw shakespeare the same ever again.

    as to what poetry is about... i think it is a personal thing that cannot be boxed and catergorised as easily as you'd expect. sure there are rules that make a poem and poem instead of a different form of writing but once it is broken down it spirals off in all kinds of directions.

    for some it is expression of experiences, for some expression of faith, for some it is the art of forming words and for others it is absolute nonsense.

    but i'll stop rambling now.
    i really appreciated your piece.

      "Romeo oh Romeo where fore art thou Romeo?" ....... "Down here in the bushes, throw me a role of toilet paper"

    I'm sorry I just couldn't resist.


    PS: This was a hot joke at school way back when I was in 6th grade. Once again sorry.
