Poet meme
Allen Ginsberg was an insightful cultural critic
writing in the beat style of the 1950's-- he
championed his queerness and his radical
leftist views through his poetry.

Which famous poet are you? (pictures and many outcomes)

I suppose I'm not entitled to complain too much without knowing more about his work than I do; but if I'm going to be identified with a 'poet', I'd prefer one whose words I considered 'poetry'. Call me a philistine if you wish, but I think a work must have an identifiable arbitrary structure, such as a well-defined meter, to qualify as poetry.
