Simple as they may be, I think the style of pop poets are good for sharing experiences and lessons rather than showcasing multilayered poetry that has you staring out into the distance until you figure out what the heck the poet is artistically saying.

Get it, girl! Before these pop poets, interest in poetry had been dwindling.
