    That's good! I may borrow that. I'm thinking the reason we have to define it open-ended like that is that many states don't have standards that apply directly to poetry as a genre so the poetry lessons are matched to the figurative language standards instead.

    That's your prerogative but I must say when I'm in the presence of someone who is *both* passionate and intelligent, I get a really feeling.

    I intended the forth option to be for people who only seem to be into poetry of specific styles - for example liking slam poetry, but not traditonal poetry - or people that only had a few poets whose works they really liked.

    I wanted to keep the options short and simple though.

    Sure, I like poetry. But it's not an all-inclusive kind of 'like'.
    Most of it I don't like but other stuff I read and it really hits home.
