Poetry is always personal, whether intended or not.  At Splinter, we recognize the intimacy poetry has to offer and because of that, it is one of our favorite genres to feature in our online journal.  Poetry needs to have lyricism and depth.  It needs to create the surreal out of the real.  Poetry is a perfect genre for exploring “The Human Condition”, and we hope you enjoy our selection.
