What Poet?

What makes a poet?
Any schlum can create
an ABAB rhyme.
Any punk with a thesaurus
can change death to decease
or make their blood-red into iron and rust.
Words merely make readers
Poets must be emotions.
Though, where lies the one
who Hasn't experienced
- "tears of joy"
- "pain of the loss"
- "the end of the road?"
Not words
Nor Emotions
-Make Them-
What then, is a poet?
