What is the difference between poetry and a short story? I need the answer in 3 to 5 sentences.
The difference between poetry and short stories is not always clear, especially with the popularity of prose and narrative poetry, as well as micro-fiction. But to establish some differences, short stories usually still follow the five plot points; meanwhile, poetry is not dependent on that and can be presented in a variety of forms, whether it's traditional verse or something contemporary. Poetry must also make complex messages as condensed yet effective as possible, while short stories focus more on building characters and theme.
