Do poems make weird, inexplicable experiences astoundingly relatable?

Keywords: Brendon Booth-Jones

Other questions to ask of a poem are: How does the poem surprise me? Does it make something familiar seem strange and new? Does it make a weird, inexplicable experience astoundingly relatable? Does it buoy me, does it offer me solidarity and empathy on a personal or political level? Does it make music out of the mundane? Does it crack open cliché, make tired language fresh and invigorating?
