When people ask you "so, what kind of poetry do you write?"
... how do you answer them?
Not other poets, mind. When someone who's a serious poet asks me something like that (though they usually phrase it in a more helpful manner), usually we have enough of a shared vocabulary that I can talk about the central concerns & projects of my work and have a somewhat interesting conversation.
But when someone who's either a casual/occasional writer of poems, or who doesn't write poems at all, asks ... what do you say?
I'm really curious. Thanks!
