Naoshi Koriyama - A Loaf of Poetry (Overview)

https://argutelegacy.blogspot.com/2019/03/koriyama-loaf-of-poetry-overview.html
Naoshi Koriyama deftly equates the poetic process with a commonplace procedure in his poem "A Loaf of Poetry," proving that in the end, poetry is open to anyone who has the persistence, experience and inspiration to dabble in it. Added to this is the idea that poetry, like a loaf of bread, is not an ornate affair like some gastronomical preparation, but one of the primary forms of sustenance crucial to our diet.

The fascination with this poem, often reprinted in textbooks and taught to students by way of introducing poetry to them, lies in its simplicity which conceals Koriyama's methodical approach. That, however, is what the poem actually wants to point out: great care and diligence to create such a piece of writing is required, no matter how modest the end product may appear to be.
