differentiated most of the time from prose, which is language meant
to convey meaning in a more expansive and less condensed way,
frequently using more complete logical or narrative structures than
poetry does. This does not necessarily imply that poetry is
illogical, but rather that poetry is often created from the need to
escape the logical, as well as expressing feelings and other
expressions in a tight, condensed manner.
