Calling All Poets for a Vote!

I came across this "poem" some time ago and thought we might answer the poet's question for him: if it is a poem, what makes it so; if it's not, why not? And go....


Ceci n'est pas un poème


I wrote

some words


and made them look

like a poem


put line breaks


in

thought-provoking places


even gave it

a fancy French title


but it was still

just some words


and not

a poem

Just like beauty, a poem is in the eye of the beholder.

It looks like a poem. It reads like a poem. It acts like a poem with some repetitive numbers of syllables. I say it’s a poem ☑️
