Two Different Views on Poetry

Ben: What are you reading?

KT: A Dictionary of Poetic Terms

Ben: Does if have a definition for poem in there?

KT: "poem (from Greek for 'thing created'): an artistically organized use of language that cannot be replaced by paraphrase...." What's so funny?

Ben: Oh, I think I could paraphrase.


Ben: "This sure is a good urn. It makes me happy."
