g2's Recognitions: The Aversion Smasher

Poetry can be, occasionally, very prickly to read. The flow can be choppy, the often-philosophical content can be difficult for the lay reader to absorb. Don’t even get me started about the frequently high levels of sappiness.

I don’t mean to offend, but until recently poetry was not my favorite to read.

That was broken when I discovered pianoman’s poetry. I’ve found it very thought-provoking, very wise, and very entertaining.

All without being overly, if at all, sappy.

Pianoman has demolished my semi-aversion to poetry.

Thank you pianoman.




  • from OrangeOreos:

    I agree. Pianoman is indeed a great poet.

    Sweet of you to continue these recognitions. I’m definitely with you on poetry; it can be really hit or miss.
