A good poem may begin in self expression, but it ends as art, which means it isn’t really for the writer anymore, but for the reader who steps into and makes the experience of the poem her or his own.

…the work of art only appears, to insensitive eyes, to be an exception to the general law of exchanges. It is not useful for anything?—say the critics; but it is useful for something precisely because it is not useful for anything; its usefulness is to express that useless part without which civilization is not possible…
— from Maurice Blanchot’s From Dread to Language

Received my order from Ambird art in the mail today :) 

It came with some surprise stickers and envelopes! I’m excited to use these for pen-paling.
