You know what is cool?
When people write about something they like. I love that. Elisa Gabbert has a cool post up about why she likes poems with "ideas." You should check it out. I'm going to try to write about why I like what I like in poems. It changes, and I often feel clumsy when I try to explain why I like something *so much* because the words -- especially in prose -- seem so slippery in comparison to the thing I like so much. But writing about why you like something is cool, and it is often more difficult than writing about why you don't like something.
