you miss the point of the poem. Poetry, my friend, can be about anything. I agree that poetry is not just a "mass of word(s)". Not all poems have to be the same, I'm sorry that you feel that way. I too think that poetry should be take from an objective point of view; however, poetry is also taken from personal experiences and values and ideals, which are not always objective. I'm sorry you did not care for this poem, and I feel that I have a fine concept of poetry.
