Query

What poetry isn't (metrical)?

Or

What meter is not based on a count of recurring features of language?

Or

What purpose does it serve to call Poem A metrical and other Poems non-metrical?

You're picking a fight with someone, right?

I'd say: none, none, and historical or polemical.

But you knew that already.

The people who make up these categories would call Poem B prose.

M: David Yow would set some things straight--or just get drunk and naked. Who's fucking great, david yow's fucking great. And I was thinking "Blockbuster" but "Boilermaker" works.

J: Absolutely, I was picking a fight! You know me.

L: Amen.
