No no, John, I think it's fine. Taste matters. There was a guy who used to post here a while ago~ good poet (I thought he was pretty good anyway), but his critiques absolutely drove me up the wall. He insisted on making everyone else's poem his, not taking into account what their intentions might have been, what the poem was trying to do. Who the poet was, the voice there. In one of his critiques of a poem of mine, he suggested that I should throw a sailor in there somewhere. You know, I was like, what the f#@k are you talking about, throw a sailor in there... Anyway, again, this wasn't so much directed at you. Really. It just came to mind. Sorry for the aside Jake.
