To me, poetry is who I “am,” and prose is what I “do.” So I am a poet who has written a novel. That being said, I’ve found that having my first novel published has given me more legitimacy as a writer (by which I mean at cocktail parties, it’s more impressive to say I’ve written and published a novel than a collection of poetry).
