Okay, I'll bite.
I don't think music dilutes poetry. I think the inverse might be true, that poetry enhances music. I think it does for me, anyway.
Granted, I'm not a big poetry buff, and some here might remember some lyrics I've posted that, at the time, may have had some bearing on a particular discussion. Yet even when posting those lyrics, I was acutely aware that reading lyrics never seems as meaningful as being immersed in the song. It's one of those "I guess you had to be there" kind of things, most of the time.
In cases like that, the two (music and poetry) feed off of each other, I think.

I think music enhances poetry, for me anyway. I don't read a lot of it, but when I do, Iike having music in the background to set the emotional mood.
Went to your site and am impressed, very good writing.

Thanks for posting the link to your poetry. Beautiful to read, I will go back and read more.
As for the music, I do think it can help set the cadence for the poem and form a stronger memory link in your brain for better or worse.
The right or wrong choice of music could make all the difference on how it is perceived.
I can see a kind of musical color wheel to construct different effects. When you get the right combo your result is what I call happy brain. Just for a quick second you know all is right, that is where I stop and never try to second guess myself past that point.
I design visually so I call it happy eyes, when I find that balance.
