Poetry by its very nature should be fully experiential, create imagery, becoming visceral and evocative of emotion. The very nature of the poem exists in the sensual world and, thus, it is erotic at the core. In poetry, I hear the words lyrically, as spoken, perhaps even whispered or sung; I see images as they create patterns of meaning in meter ““ and I see the face of my lover.
Hopefully, you will experience these poems as instances of sensuous experience in words spoken aloud with a lover.”
