And besides... the nature of Sanctuary seems to want us to have more of a generalized growth in poetry than a specific one. If you can't edit your poem right off the bat, doesn't mean you can't take the comments under advisement and remember them for a later date.
For those of you who want to really work on your poetry, the structure of it, the subtlety of it, etc., please start posting in Sanctuary.
The way Mike said this made me think of Sanctuary as different from CA, because it focuses mainly on the individual growth of the writer, as opposed to the individual growth of the poem. Work on your poetry, not on that one poem, but the way you write poetry... the way you regard poetry, the way you value the different aspects of poetry. The goal for us would be to improve ourselves, overall, as writers.
Maybe I'm wrong... but that doesn't happen too often...
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
