That poetry would just be a pretty combination of words isn't satisfying for me. I would prefer to be physically challenged as a reader-- to have my eyes and mind work differently due to the physical presentation of the poem. Alternatively I would like to be emotionally challenged-- for a poem to describe feelings or thoughts that seem to put the poet's inner self on the line, to take a risk that allows me to connect to my own deeper feelings.
