Direct Antagonism in Poetry

Direct antagonism is a nice tool in poetry. Much recommend it. It can temporarily confuse the reader (in a good way) and make them question what the narrative is really trying to say. It can convey a conundrum in the narrator / protagonist of the poem (if there is one) very well.

 

I say it

I don’t say it

I say it

I don’t say it

 

Something like that. It can be surrealist, postmodern, naturalist, impressionist, progressive, transgressive, and all your other isms ists and ives.

USE IT
