All My Poems

All my poems
know they are poems.

Each turn of phrase
is over the shoulder
to make sure I am watching.

Like student drivers,
my poems accelerate in herks and jerks
and stomp too hard on the
line breaks.

Some dogs are dogs
and some dogs are people,

But lately
all my poems know they are
poems.
