oh yes!  
Oh yes! Fourth corollary, which Mom reminds me to ask:

Do you like poetry? If so, what kind of poetry? Do you read it for pleasure? If you're an imaging reader, does poetry work for you? Tell me, tell me! (I'm really enjoying this discussion. Heehee.)

I like poetry - but most of it was written when poetry was what you used to write fiction. :) I even have favorite poems. I believe that the point of poetry is to conjure an image of a moment or series of them - some of the finest images from reading come from poems. I've a prejudice against modern poetry (unless it's for children, then there is some fine poetry there.) Poetry is also extremely subjective and personal; poetry should also be spoken outloud which is not done enough and perhaps is the reason behind some of my self-proclaimed prejudice towards it.

Uhm. What was the question again? ;)
