Troubled poems

Poet Susan Grimm writes about troublesome poems: (a partial follow-up to her earlier post, How I Thought/Think About Poems I Write):
  • The poem that is there but in disguise... The poem that is not yet there...
What do you do when the poem's giving you trouble? Tough love? Let it go? Give it more attention? Try to ignore it?
