Is Poetry a Dead Genre?

    I write poetry and published a short collection a couple of years ago that sold a few copies to family and friends. I have begun to write again and would like to publish, but poetry seems to be a rather difficult genre. I was wondering if anyone has any experience publishing poetry and their thoughts on whether anyone actually buys it anymore, other than a select few.

    Honestly, I think poetry and prose are gearing up to make a comeback.

    Very small market. No money in it. This has been the case for decades.
