An eternal question of poetics

Does it become a poem when
I     place     the     words     just     so  ?

Does poetry depend
upon spaces and
returns?

I hear poetry in an autumn breeze even if I describe it in a short paragraph, taking up all of the space between the margins.

Is it
any less
poetry
for the margins?
