International Poetry Day


Because it is International Poetry Day today, and because I've already covered on my two favourite poems on here, here's this:

“Whereas story is processed in the mind in a straightforward manner, poetry bypasses rational thought and goes straight to the limbic system and lights it up like a brushfire. It's the crack cocaine of the literary world.”
