Subway subvocal subsnow
It's a mistake to think of poetry as rarefied on the one hand or an entertainment on the other. Like all art, poems may be both. Should be both?
Or run the risk of becoming ad copy.
Stevensian, I echo they must give pleasure. Maybe you'd call pleasure truth, meaning, narrative, surprise, uncanniness, message, the word as jewel, percussive consonants, a sophisticated meter.
As it pleases you.
As syllable from sound.
