Google literary magazines. There are some online but your best bet is to look for ones in your own country or close by as they like local flavour. They often pay out as well if they pick your poem or short story.
Anthologies is the next best bet. Either gather together a few of your own poems and short stories and publish them as an Anthology or see if there are other writers interested in putting together an Anthology together.
If you don't mind giving them away free then there are also sites that publish e-stories and e-poems. Best to find one that suits your writing. Like Wattpad if you are writing teenage fiction. There is a place for every kind of writing.
