Q:3. How important is form in your poetry?

 I look to form choice last in almost all of my work. This is something I am working on, because the visual appearance of a poem is a reader magnet. I finish my poems, and then began to move, shorten, lengthen, and modify. I am not analytical, so the format poems such as the sonnet or ghazal, make my head pound a bit. I did include a haibun in  Just a Spit down the Road.


More answers tomorrow.
