It’s Poetry When

It’s poetry when you read it
more than once
and your coffee gets cold.

It’s poetry when no one knows it is
but you read it aloud anyway
because of how it sounds.

It’s poetry when the greatest poet
says it’s not
but you write it down anyway
and he tries to stop you
so you run with it
like a chicken with a pen
up its butt.
