Must a Poem?

By Carla   

Must a poem be a sonnet,
A haiku, or even a ballad?
Must a poem be a confession,
A report, or a lie?
Is rhyme a requirement?
Are capital letters necessary?
cummings didn't think so.
Must a poem be judged to have merit?
Must it be universal,
Or when it accidentally reaches the ends of the infinite,
Is it a really good poem?
