Poem in Which The Poet Takes a Step Back

Can you love this poem?
Isn’t it easy to be in love with this?
Do you want this to go on?
Is it called “sleight of hand” or “sight of hand?”
Is this just a silly poem?
How do you feel about facing this speaker?
How do you feel about facing pages?
And what about the adjective “little?”
This is a query (or is it a comment?)
Is this scientific or enough?
Is this scientific or tough?
Isn’t all poetry forever?
Is this an exceptional phrase?
Should I leave room for a pause?
What about starting a poem with “Better than?”
