I'm a part-time software engineer and stay-at-home-dad. I used to be a high-school English teacher, but cured me of that.

I love poetry but don't read enough of it.

I hate arguing online but I do way too much of it.

I try to seek out people with different life experiences to me, so if I follow you and you wonder if I'm gonna be problematic and tell you you're wrong, I'm actually just listening in and hoping to learn something.

I'd probably block me. YMMV

@JacksonBates Another code monkey who also loves poetry & English? Excellent! I'm a fan of Neruda and e e cummings and like to write shitty poetry myself when time & energy allow (in other words, before kids).

@Roceal Neruda has been on my to-read list forever, but I've still never gotten around to him. What poem/s would you recommend as a jumping off point?

@JacksonBates Somewhere in a box I have a copy of Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair that I quite like. It has the original Spanish on the left and the English on the right hand page.
