I don't know you at all, so these are generic answers in no particular order:
Read lots of other people's poems; leave interesting and thoughtful comments.
Every time you write a poem, walk away from it and let it sit for 3-5 days, then rework it and post it. Don't post more than one poem a day - we are all busy.
Make sure you have 2-4 pictures, photographs, maps to complement the poem.
Be very, very patient. Building a "good" following takes a lot of time and work.
Don't automatically follow everybody. They may follow you back, but never read your hubs. Carefully choose people you really want to read and comment on.
Do not get discouraged, read good poetry because it will improve your work.
Good luck, although luck really has nothing to do with it. Welcome to HP.
You can try adding more tags to your poems, which should help bring in more readers.
I have a hub on a true love poem, I do find updating, commenting, visting others for inspiration. Just like phdast7 said - This will eventually bring some more traffic to your peom.
Poetry unfortunately doesn't attract a wide audience, especially in the US. If you want to get more exposure, submit your work to a broader audience instead of limiting it to only one venue. And NEVER stop writing your poems. A small audience is not necessarily an indication that your work doesn't have merit. Believe in yourself as a poet and believe in the work you produce. Good luck.

I'm interested in poetic process. I personally believe the real writing comes in the editing stage and that all first drafts, without exception, are abysmal. As a result, I edit and rewrite a piece...
