Your poems meander through the warehouse of poetic tropes, picking and choosing whatever is convenient and pleasurable to you. You do not claim any deep social significance for your poems; you simply like to ruminate on your feelings at any given moment. While these poems may feel private, their lack of specificity allows for their public circulation.
