Poetry is a special form of writing, but it is writing nonetheless and should be checked for formatting, grammar, and intended meaning. With its more economical use of words, any glaring errors will have a greater negative impact on your overall message and the reader's experience with your work.
I have edited both free and formal verse poetry in the past and am fully cognizant of the fact that many poets only want a proofreader. They want someone to make sure that no silly grammatical or spelling errors have been made in the course of their work. Whatever your needs are, I am happy to follow your specifications in order to help you produce a high-quality poetic work.
