Poetry is the language when it is heightened with special attributes such as meter and rhyme, special vocabulary, et cetera.

Very well,
let’s ask this another way.
What poetry though more than a hundred years old
would you be willing to read
and why?

To see if I approve of the reasons and ulterior motives behind the asking.

He doesn't.  But I may give a better answer knowing the context and direction of the question(s).

Fair enough, I'm just a little on edge with all the slights people are taking at me lately. I feel like I have to constantly defend myself; it's like living with my father again, it's annoying. Sorry dude.

Please let everyone be assured that the answers I receive

Well John, if that is your plan, then I myself don't wish to contribute.           Oh forgive me, back to your question ~ poetry in my opinion is whatever you want it to be.  In my day at any coffee house, poetry could be just one word,   Peace.

Poetry is expression which would be all three...(or would it??)there is actually much spirit in poetry as well which would make it none of the above if it is spiritual....hmmmmm!!!

Poetry is what you get when you're too lazy to write in complete sentences.

Poetry is a concise narrative of the things happening around you.

"Poetry is a concise narrative of the things happening around you."

At the center of which all too often
the writer thinks himself
the highest and brightest point.

Concise?
I doubt that . . .

Poetry is language intensified - a sort of concentrate if you will. This sort of concentrate may be achieved bu many different means - the sound of the words, the rhythm of the words, a preordained structure, or all of the above. Words are more than mere dictionary definitions - or mere assemblages of phonemes. Poetry treats language in its' wholeness - sound, rhythm, association, and definition, to provide a fuller meaning than that which can be reached analytically.

Please cool down.  "What the hell" and "mind your own damn business" don't inspire a healthy discussion either.

He's obviously not trying to strike up a discussion, Ess.
