I think so, Kris. A Hub does well if its writer tend to follow other Hubbers and leave some good comments. They will likely follow you then. Still, there is no guarantee as your Hub should also remind them of decent quality.
I feel that most of us have this potential, and perhaps you're already there. Why don't you try? Hub Pages are full of great Poets, but I can give you a couple or so names. Audrey Howitt; Nellieanna, Deergha (not so active now), Jodah ...many more.
Poetry does well because you will be in with a chance of becoming the Poetry Hubber of the Year. Some of the above-mentioned poets have many followers. I have over 250 poems on here, and I have been on Hub Pages just 6 years. I have recently completed my 301 Hub. Jump in and best wishes.
