children s literature and teaching writing2

This day is already putting

all kinds of words in your head and breaking them up

into lines

and making the lines into pictures in your mind

and in the pictures the people are frowning and eating

and reading and playing ball

and skipping along

and spinning themselves

into poetry


All of my blood

in my veins




All of the thoughts

in my head
