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.....
