Poetry from the Not Poet

So I’ve been finishing off most of my poems with #poetryfromthenotpoet. I started doing it as a disclaimer because I know next to nothing about poetry. I don’t read it. I don’t know the various types. I don’t know any rules. I don’t pretend to think I write it well. I just enjoy it. I don’t want to learn the rules. I’ve had to do that… study a bit… when it comes to writing novels, and that’s a good thing. It’s made me a better writer, a better novelist. But I don’t want to be a good poet. I just know that sometimes I fill up with words and I like to pour them out. I’m not interested in learning how to spill a full glass of water in an organized fashion. Structure free feels nice sometimes, don’t you think?
