I do not believe that the poem Working as a housemaid in an international hotel is much of a poor poem Despite that fact that it neither rhymes nor uses any language techniques such as imagery and has no structure what-so-ever it is not a universal law that the above aspects should be included in good poetry The originality displayed in the poem is believable yet unique that it engages the reader in a particular way through the poems own distinctiveness and diversity from other pieces Perhaps what makes a piece of writing engaging and entertaining is its individuality that singles it out from the rest of the others In Working as a housemaid in an international hotel this is a good example Most poems are filled with language techniques that are both rhythmical graceful to read However here we are given not the usual poetry of flowing language but a mere free verse filled with irregular punctuation and lacking in both structure and rhyme Yet having none of the expected features of a customary poem doesnt mean that it is a poorly written one It is possible that the poem was written this way to reflect her past experiences as a young frustrated woman working in an international hotel who spoke poor English Nevertheless its style and technique is rather particular and inimitable as opposed to the usual poems With such elements as these it is already engaging with its individuality Uniqueness is one of the features of a good piece of writing for that it gives the audience a new approach from the already repeated styles Many have mentioned that the originality of this poem is lacking However in my opinion I do not think this is so In the majority of poetries it is rather rare that one would mention such topics as working in international hotels as most would be subjected to love esp broken heartedness emotions happiness sorrow
