poetry

I think it was Borges (or may be he quoted somebody?) said smth like: in novel, we believe in hero, even if we do not believe in his adventures, think Don Quixote. Same way in poetry we believe in emotion, even if we do not believe the metaphor.

I believe that’s the prove that poetry developed before prose, same way as tonal music was first. Clean note as clean emotion.
