    Can this even be described? I'm not talking about rules, except maybe your own. And I don't mean definitions. What is it that makes it identifiable in the real world? How do we know what we know about poetry? Is it static or organic? Moving or standing still? Changing or frozen? I think you know. Please tell me.

    One could only answer you in a poem, and that doesn't get us very far, does it? But it is the best we can do.
