A technical golden nugget: "A simple method for distinguishing the kinds and functions of content in a poem is to imagine to content of a poem in the shape of a cross..."
A simplified version of the cross Jack speaks of looks like this:
This cross then goes on to resemble more of a pinwheel upon consideration and examination of elements within different poems.
And now, more of a general golden nugget: "...The same cognitive processes we use in decoding our experience in the world are the same cognitive processes we use when we first read a poem."
What poem has given you the most fulfilling experience when reading? The most recent one for me is Mary Ruefle's "White Buttons."
