Not me. I just felt annoyed by the question. What defines me as a
writer is that I put words down on paper, or the equivalent thereof;
what defines me as a poet is that I try to do things to those words to
make them not prose. I suspect, though, that whoever made up the
question wanted to find out what one's goals as a writer/poet were.
Ultimately, to give pleasure to others in as many different ways
simultaneously as possible--aesthetic pleasure in the case of poetry,
verosophical pleasure in the case of my prose.
