More poetry!

I don’t mean to keep posting about how tired I am, but, well, that’s where I am. In fact, I accidentally fell asleep for four hours, and I’m really not even sure how I’m awake enough to cobble together this post since I almost fell asleep twice before beginning it. Is my commitment to self that strong? I guess so.

Anyway, here’s another poem. I show it during our poetry unit when I’m prepping my students for their own poetry readings. This is a high school student featured in the documentary Louder Than a Bomb¬†(which is AMAZING–watch it).

The line about the seatbelt gets me every single time.
