After completing WriSems boot camp, I am much more comfortable using the words “poetry” and “poet” to refer to myself. We had to identify which genre we were in so many times that the words lost some of their preciousness. I went to a party with a bunch of med students, and got to be part of this conversation:

“What’s your specialty?”

“Gastroenterology. What’s yours?”
