What Makes A Poem? (poem)

I’ve been pondering a question:

What makes a poem?

Is it the rhythm of a repeated

rhyme? Time, meter – line?


Assonance plays with sibilance

Not forgetting consonance

A friend to fickle alliteration

A simple station – yet we

Stop there.

Pay your fare and

Play your games fair!

What makes a poem?

Perhaps it’s simply the poet!
