on the periphery of knowing,"

Some poems from the teacher

Steer clear of .com sites for finding poetry. Everyone can publish a poem on the Internet. That doesn't make it great poetry. Also, try to expand your views. Read poems that challenge your ideas about what you like and don't like in poetry.
