I don’t know how to put this, but what has happened to poetry?

I truly don’t understand gate keeping. I see it in photography and as a new poet, I see it in poetry. Things change and evolve. Just because we don’t understand why the change happened, doesn’t mean it’s bad. I still have zero idea of who Gabby Hannah is. But I picked up her book a few years back and I liked it. This new age of poetry sells because it’s relatable to the audience it was written for. This new poetry sells because it matches the culture and climate of today’s world. So what’s happening to poetry??? It’s changing and evolving just like the language and culture are changing and evolving.
