Much poetry that is designated as "poetry" is uncreative, uninteresting free verse; song lyrics, however, rigidly adhere to the poetic standards of rhyme and meter. Songwriter-as-poet and lyrics-as-poetry are particularly apparent in hip-hop or rap, with the musicality reduced to a minimum, and the merit of the art judged not on musicianship but on the imagery and poetry of the verse. Hip-hop is produced and is popular in what seems every language in the world. It's cool to be a "hip-hop artist;" it's dorky to be a "poet," but broad appreciation of evocative and linguistically acrobatic poetry is certain.

The only incontestable fact of existence: I cannot know whether I am alone.

In order to live, I must ignore the only incontestable fact of existence.

I like girls who know how to enjoy themselves. I love women who know how to enjoy men.

Now tell me something that you know you shouldn't tell me, but that you really want to tell me.

No! I want to wake up Sunday mornings in white sheets entwined with you.

No! I want to wake up face down in dusty alleys in Polynesia.

No. I do not want to wake up.
I enjoy general and specific perversion.
