I unenrolled from the poetry course: the introductory video was enough to break my brain, and not in an enjoyable way. I don't like close reading of stuff, which is what you do to study poetry. And in the first discussion forum I looked at, someone said "hermeneutics" and I couldn't decide between passing out or hurling my laptop across the room.

(Other trigger words include "epistemology", "semiotics" and another couple that I am clearly repressing to avoid distress because for the life of me, I can't remember them. I am, however, quite okay with "historiography" because that's just the history of history, which makes perfect sense, as any fule kno).

Poetry is sort of like humor, in that once one starts to analyze it, all the juice runs out.
