If you are only

If you are only
allowed to care about one
thing in poetry,

care about truth

I disagree. I think that music, composition, and word choice are important. Veracity isn't demanded of a novel, and it shouldn't be demanded of a poem. Is Paradise Lost a crappy poem because it is based on some silly old myths?

I really 'get' where this comes from. Of course it is true (excuse the pun). Intent is important too.
