Why must poetry be confined to poems?

Posted to Poetry




Why must poetry be confined to poems? All of one's speech can be poetry, why must beauty be seperate from life? Love can't be contained between two people, it must be shared with the community. Beauty should not, could not, would not be greyboxed on the other side of the glass, castrated and monkish. It must be with us & around us, else what good does it do?
