Do you believe in evolutionary poetry? If so do you feel it has its place, or has its own validity, or is it just a lazy way to write, and holds little of what we call creativity?
I often write a poem (often? Hell, it is the only way write...) begining with a vague idea (or no idea at all) and a phrase, or couple of phrases. I begin and then let things progress and turn, and move, and shift, as I write. Upon finishing I will occassionally reposition a phrase or stanza, sometimes I take something out, and very rarely, I hold on to it and come back later to work on it some more.
So is this creativity? Poetry? Does a work with no intent at its inception have a valid place?

Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so.
