Poetry Questions

There's a faint chance I could be writing some articles based on various aspects of reading poetry, depending on how my early submissions go, and while I've got several ideas I'm always looking for more. So, a quick question. Are there any poetry related questions or topics anyone has particularly wanted answers to or comments on? Not that I'm the world expert on poetry or anything, but I thought I'd ask.

Hey Stu,
I'd really like to understand language poetry better - at present it just annoys me so any light you can shed on why I should appreciate it - that would be awesome.
I also tagged you for a meme. . . http://www.andilit.com/?p=215

Language poetry? This is slightly worrying. I'm trying to write articles and the first term used is one I haven't come across. Still, I suppose that's what search engines are for.

Ah... now I understand. The teenie tiny problem is that it's the sort of pretentious postmodernist nonsense that also rather annoys me. Wittgenstein and Derrida have a lot to answer for.
