Huh??? Can you explain?
Marilyn Yung

Hey Marilyn,

Yes, everyone speaks from first person point of view. What I’m talking about are the words she uses. Imagine it like a conversation you’re having with someone, and they said, in all seriousness, “Waste not want not. I am not being wasted. Why do I want?”. It would sound pretentious as hell. Or if they spoke in a series of short, connected sentences that never really end, like a little kid. People do not speak to each other in poetry, unless it’s like a party game or something.
