Anyone that knows me or follows this blog knows that I am a poet and love to write poetry but what may surprise you is that I’m not a fan of reading poetry. Apart from Sylvia Plath and Dylan Thomas, I do not find other people’s work inspiring. What I love is music and lyrics, which as far as I’m concerned in only poetry set to music. Yet if I went to a poetry corner and started reading the lyrics of a Pulp song I would be laughed at. Am I only with this thought? Are lyricist poets?
