In a book where a lot of the poems seem to be love poems, where do I fit the other great pieces about…well, not love? Do I divide my book up in different sections so I can include more? After all, late night feelings don’t have to be about love. Should I just leave them out? Make another book out of what’s leftover? Decisions, decisions.
Another problem is the different forms I have. Will it look odd to have a bunch of free form poems and then have 10 haiku and an acrostic poem? How about having short poems versus long poems?
I guess my real ultimate question is: How do I create symmetry and harmony within my book without losing edge?
