From Zombies to Pomatoes to Billy Collins
A single stool
Plenty of seating on
The wooden floor
A projector beaming
The setlist of
33 seventh graders onto
A Screen behind the performers–
The minimalist stage for
An hour of reading
Recently scrawled (or the keyboarded equivalent of scrawled) poems
“Inspired by” poems
Encouraging laughter in response to
That Zombie apocalypse poem
“EWW!!! green colored undead!”
Song Lyric poem read out by
A girl who may know nothing of
The intended meaning of
Birds held high
The pomatato shape poem maybe about
Genetically engineered vegetables
Brought down the house when read by
The boy whose beloved thermos was found in
A poopy toilet
Only a couple weeks ago.
Metaphors join the party with
Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins.
Each performer applauded onto the stage by friends
Saranghe (“I love you” in Korean) 사랑합
Interludes of St. German
We snap instead of clap because
Mr. Jeremy told us that’s what happens at
Did everyone memorize their poem? No.
Did everyone read their poem dramatically? No.
Did we have fun? Yes.
