On my poetry web page
At first I said,
        I don't know what a poet really is,
        but I don't think I'm a poet.
Eight months later I said,
        I'm coming to reluctant acceptance
        that I may, indeed be a poet.

As I sit in this coffee house
Watching random little ideas
About damned near anything
Form themselves into tight little
collections of words,
I have to admit:
        No question about it.
        I'm a poet.
