No, not the meaning of life. Or even what I’m going to wear tomorrow.
I just figured out how I can like music lyrics so much but have a hard time with poetry. It’s because I can HEAR the songwriter’s intentions. I know where they want to place emphasis and what parts of the music are supposed to be stressed. I guess there are clues in poetry (rhythm, meter, line breaks) but I haven’t quite learned how to interpret all that quite yet.
Oh, and I figured this out at the gym… a culmination of sweat, poetry, Jay-Z, and a book I’m reading for book club. I love it when world’s collide.
