Hello, Kathryn, and welcome to Writer's Beat. I see Tau has given you the heads up, but I'll just reiterate in my own pointless way.
Basically, the Introductions forum is just for saying hello and telling us a little about yourself. All work for critique should be posted in the appropriate forum (Write Here: Poetry, in this case).
We also have a strong critique-to-be-critiqued ethos here, so it would be appreciated it you read some contributions by other members and commented.
For fun and games, or general chat, check out the Writers Cafe.
Read all stickies, as advised, and feel free to contact a member of staff if you have any questions.
Most of all, enjoy your stay.
