Not a poem

I’m sorry.

Just because I’m written
with line breaks,
and with some kind of
attempt at earnestness,
that doesn’t make me
a poem.

I’m sorry.

Even though someone
sweated over my composition
for a full ten minutes
and felt really proud of me,
that doesn’t make me
a poem.

I’m sorry.

However many people
adopt this writing style,
hoping for some kind of
magical transmogrification,
that still won’t make me
a poem.

Will it?
