Our Poetry Class - July 16, 2023

poem read

each student sits silent

but only on the outside


around the table critiques

word tips shape shift

a stanza reshuffled


and then the hush

when our poetry teacher

says


continue your journey use

words true for your vision

forget the melodies of others

learn harmony with your self

pay attention to poets

that sing like that
