What is sf poetry? You know what they say about definitions -- everybody has one. To be sure, it is poetry (we'll leave that definition to you), but it's poetry with some element of speculation - usually science fiction, fantasy, or horror. Some folks include surrealism, some straight science. One thing is certain - SFPAns know sf poetry when they see it.
