But yes, Dears, when I do post about my son and my dogs (and the hubby, cats, the big burly men, cooking, etc), it is a poetics.
Specifically, it is a poetics of not telling other poets how to write or what to write.
That's important, too.
Especially when audience so often relies on one's perception of community, of what might attract others to your poems.
Poor community--you get so much inflicted on you, dear word.
