Fourteen poems, each two words in length. Can these two-word poems be called "poems"? Why not?

Hhmm.. As is perhaps too often the case (?), I like this more for its formal properties than for any other reason. Word combinations like: "SAME RATION", "STIFF EACH", "ACTUALLY CLEAVES", etc, 2 words per small card - perhaps each writer contributed one word per card, perhaps knowing what the other had written, perhaps independently. Perhaps these are poetry Rorschach blots, little catalysts to 'make-yr-own-poem'. Whatever the case, this is unique.
