Poems read with too much concern as to “what the hell does it mean” will always miss at least half of life, maybe much much more.
Yes, but poems that mean nothing to anyone but the writer are worse. They are impostors, pretending to be literature while making a mockery of all that human. Now, a poem that means nothing at all even to the person who wrote it is far superior for it means that the poet is at least as human as the rest of us – if he admits he doesn’t understand his own poem. But then I’d wonder why he wrote it? What’s the point? A poem doesn’t necessarily need a meaning, but it does need a purpose.
