I wanted to continue our passionate discussion about what is considered art and poetry and so forth.
First, I think that the text the "art" is in matters. It is not fair or possible to compare a poem in a English book to a musicians song. Each has its own meanings and purpose and who has the right to say one is and one is not art(poetry).
I think that if you were given the lyrics of a song, it would seem more like a poem and art then anything else. Listening to the music and the lyrics takes away a bit of the artful/poetry aspect.
Also, art is in the eye of the beholder. A blank canvas is considered art, why not a song that is random. A conscious spew of words could be a poem.
