The Poems i teach.

(I didn’t know I needed this poem)

A poet can’t know which poem will be next

which moment will send her pen in a frenzy

these kids

these broken home/heart/faith

these broken. mosaic beautiful. kids are poems when I meet them

they say they don’t know what poetry is

i say they only need to shave a little of their skin and slam it on pages

they are the best poems i never wrote.
