"Poetry, Art"

Is poetry art?
  Is there a process?
    Most definitely.
  Is there a product?
    What are you reading?
  Is there an experience?
    That’s up to you.
Is art poetry?
  Are there images?
    Almost always.
  Is there allusive alliteration?
  Do colors communicate words, thoughts, emotions?
    Yes—if it’s good.
So are the two interchangeable—poetry, art?
  Undeniably the answer cannot be
  either yes or no,
  for the poet creates a work of
  but artists rarely if ever
