Sometimes I think about how romantic it would be to be a poet. Or even just a writer, although writers always seemed a bit more scientific to me. Poets seemed creative, bold, even a bit elusive. I have known good writers, despite my young age, but I have never met a good poet. It might be an art that is hard to make until one has gathered a large amount of experience, as well as a large amount of words with which to write about that experience. And certainly a seventeen year old does not have that much of either.
