One of the things that drive me crazy (short rant)

I write poetry in a wide variety of forms, but free verse is my most basic.  I write on a variety of subjects but narrative vignette poetry is my absolute favorite.

Anybody who's read my stuff before knows most of my poems are story poems.  And knows I write free verse a lot.

So I have this one reviewer who sent this comment today:  it's sweet, but doesn't seem like a poem to me.  What kind of poem is it?
I'll like to look it up
.

This is not the first time she told me that one of my narrative poems should have been a oneshot.

I hope she does look it up.  Maybe she'll learn that it's the dominant verse form of the 20th century.....
