    imagery, gotta be able to feel and see and touch and taste and smell that poem
    does every word count?
    did you pick the right form for the poem? for instance some ideas may work better as a haiku rather than a limerick
    did you appeal to emotion?
    there's more but that comes to mind

    let me make one on the spot. beware of the sillyness.

    feeling just like ive been exposed
    the greener the floor (when generates sea)
    im always on top now cant you see?

    the lesson is- do whatever your mind thinks. even if it sucks.
