Communication Oxymoron: Complex Poetry…

Complex Poetry

A great observation/opinion on how many people ‘try’ to be complex and deep when writing poetry (rhymes):

“Hey, this must be deep. And that’s what happens when folks decide to write poetry. That’s what they decide they’re going to be, deep. They decide they’re going to be poetic. People feel as though, like, the way to be poetic is to make sure that there’s certain little parts that can’t nobody understand. Why would you need a poet to make things more complex, if communication is what it’s all about!?”
-Words from the intro track on Abstract Rude & Tribe Uniques’ Album “P.A.I.N.T.”
