I certainly am interested in accessibility, clarity, and immediacy.
Living at that pitch, on that edge, is something which many poets engage in to some extent.
One will never again look at a birch tree, after the Robert Frost poem, in exactly the same way.
I believe that these devices like repetition and rhyme are not artificial, that they're not imposed, somehow, on the language.
For whatever reason, people, including very well-educated people or people otherwise interested in reading, do not read poetry.
