Teenage girls and angst-ridden poetry go together like love and marriage.
Horse and carriage.
Soup and sandwich.
Sheesh, I'm starting to sound like a Campbell's soup commercial. (Yes, I'm old -- and it's a classic, AND I tried to find a youtube video and, alas, failed.)
Anyway, emotional drama/trauma + teen girl = perfect poetry fodder.
Which brings us to today's question.
If a girl writes a poem in a forest and nobody reads it, is it still angsty?
If a girl writes a poem and LEAVES IT ON HER DESK FREE AND IN THE OPEN ... is it OK to read it?
Let's take a poll, shall we?
*edited to add: oh for GAWD'S sake... Polldaddy does not preview the damned poll. Apparently if you do not eliminate Answers 3, 4 and 5, it shows up and proves that you are mondo stupid. OY*
I'm interested in your comments, in addition to your votes.
Because, my DEAR, I'm entering unknown territory that is laden with estrogen land mines.
And send chocolate.
