Personal personal v Personal which leeches?
I don't like poems* to venture too close to the very personal, but of course we can't help it as we're the only genuine frame of reference we've got. I tend to prefer a certain detachment, and I know that alienates those who enjoy the voyeuristic kind of read you get with the ultra-confessional stuff, but at the end of the day, I really just like to play with words and see if I can't get people thinking a bit. I suspect there's more of a personal connection there than most people would realise, since intellect is king for me.

*I mean I don't like to write them, I'll read them, but only if technique isn't sacrificed in the hope that people are sympathetic enough to forgive the lapse.
It could be worse
