...is painful to read. Everything is just:

Write some words here that don't really make sense,
Now do a line with a,
Random line break in it for no reason at all.
Often you see a couple of lines with the same last words.
The previous line and this one have the same last words.
Next you make a nonsense metaphor,
Because my writing is a torquoise sepulcher of crystal.
There is no meter really.

Who needs form when you can free form and be free from form?
You would think that that meter line,
Would be at the start of this stanza,
Rather than the end of the last stanza,
But it isn't.
It just isn't.
Art is a wildebeest in heat.
Nothing really rhymes,
Except sometimes you find,
An off rhyme or two somewhere in the,
Poem is what this is and notice,
How I used a word to start and end seperate,
Sentences to cruel and unusual punishment,
Is what being dragged to a poetry slam is.

How do you feel about what,
They,
Pass off as poetry these days?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I see this is a thread from someone who has the mindset of a poetry pleb.

Enjoy your Dr. Seuss! I'll be reading underwater 21d chess.
I like St. Anger. Ridicule me, daddy

Rupi Kaur is dreadful I agree but i think there is some good stuff.

Pete Simonelli I'm somewhat fond of, but mostly because of his connection to Enablers. But he's probably in his 50s now. I prefer short, simple "descriptive" forms of poetry usually anyway so I'm pretty happy with the older stuff for now

I like your style

I like your class

but most of all i like your ass


Kissing is a habit
Fucking is a game
Guys get all the pleasure
Girls get all the pain
The guy says i love you
You believe its true
But when your tummy starts to swell,
He says 'to hell with you'
10 minutes of pleasure
9 months in pain
3 days in hospital
A baby without a name
The baby is a bastard
The mother is a whore
This never wouldn't have happened
If the rubber wouldn't have torn


Roses are red

Violets are blue

Porn hub is down

Your mum's facebook will do

John Keats was your example of "crappy" classical poetry? Sm goddamn h. He's one of the greatest poets of all time, and my personal favorite.

theogonia777 I thought somewhat similarly to you, and went on a very deliberate quest at a book store to find some modern poetry that I really enjoyed. I settled on Life on Mars by Tracy Smith. It's incredible.

I try to read it here & there, in magazines & anthologies --
But in truth, I'm sad to say, I'm not too well versed (LMAO) in poetry post-Modernism
(Ezra Pound & T. S. Eliot fighting in the captain's tower).
Stevens' Collected Poetry & Prose is on my nightstand.

I'm not saying that all modern poetry is insufferable,
Nor am I a mongoose.
These things are relevant because,
Modern poetry is oftentimes ubiquitous,
In the world of small muscalids,
Minding in the furrows,
When forth they venture from their burrows.
Such a site is the nectar of remembrances,
The bitter embrace of such a dichotomy as,
Sun rays and the westward wind,
On the morrow.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I kinda see modern poetry as being more about the performance and imagery than having a set meter/rhythm and is something you can read easier. Although even back in the Dylan Thomas days he was known for having a great delivery at the time. You listen to him now and its like nah I'd rather read it, thanks mate.

As far as published poetry go I haven't read anything post 90's now that I think about it tbh so frick if I know really. Can only comment on poetry I've seen in pubs, and usually it was rare to hear something good.

Too many
Poems
Are actually just boring
Stories
With the line changed
At random
Times
So it looks like
A poem
But isn't
I have nothing important to say

I like modern poetry.

No but for real, i went to art school and had to go to museums/theatre and dance shows often. And modern shows were horrid, and not much better than this poetry. Nude in every show just because it's artistic, incoherent story or just plain none, dance without music for 2 hours.... really weird stuff.

And i feel like its a trend, they're so out of ideas that they just do random stuff to be "artistic" :p

That one with the little northern fella talking about his mum's roast

I've never been big into poetry.. the odd entry-level poem catches my eye but nothing more. I do enjoy mocking poetry in marketing and those YouTube slam poets though... if that counts.
