Poetry Challenge Day 132 (Sun Feb 13)

I’ve been trying to figure out
what exactly is poetry.
I stumbled across the notion
(quite by accident)
that a lot of people hate poetry.
(Seriously, it’s a thing.)
I suppose that’s true.
It may be true for me.
I don’t know why.
I suppose it might be because
a lot of poetry takes work,
and even then it turns out
to be something of a mystery.
(Completely unrewarding as it were.)
I think you know what I’m trying to say.
Does the lack of mystery here
make this something other than poetry?
I suppose that means
the question remains unanswered.

More on this to come…
