Not cat poetry

Been a while since I’ve considered trying to write cat poetry. I’d probably need to read some poetry first. I haven’t read poetry in a very long time. Probably ten years at this point. I always hated writing poetry; it’s a far different thing than writing prose. In prose, the text has the relationship with the reader. When writing it, the writer’s relationship is with the text. It’s a perfect equation. The writer doesn’t have to think about the reader while drafting. With poetry, there is–at least for me–a direct throughput. The poem doesn’t exist with the reader in a different way. So another night of no cat poetry. Because I can’t figure out how to write a poem anymore.
