Puzzled about labels for poets. NATURE POETS: is there a poet alive who does not love nature, or is blind to it, or who does not care about its current plight? GAY/QUEER/LESBIAN POETS: If you are one of these (and I am not) are you happy with the prefix? Do poets like me need to be labelled HETEROSEXUAL POETS? WOMEN POETS does this mean I should refer to any male poet as a MAN POET? Aren't we all just POETS?
