This book [How to Write a Poetry Book When the Genre Gives You Hives] is one of the great contradictions in my life. Until two years ago, I despised poetry almost to the point of erupting in hives at the drop of a rhythmic phrase, yet I've recently completed a collection of poems for my honors project. Not by the most determined use of the imagination could this be considered consistent logic. I don't pretend to make it appear as such. Though I'd love to respond to the, "When did you begin writing poetry?" platitude with the haughty "Since my late sixes, early sevens," the fact remains that I'd always hated poetry; and I've written a book of poems.
