In My Head



I am calling this a poem
but I am not calling that a poem,
though that is almost certainly also a poem.
I get to decide (why? how?),
and my deciding is poetry.
This is unaffected by my decision.
That is unaffected by my decision.
I am affected by my decision.
There is no poetry in the world.
There is only poetry in my head.
Poetry is what I say it is
and where I say it is.
May I be as wise
as I am powerful!
