Passion & Politics


I spent hours last night listening to arguments for and against funding the school budget. This experience convinced me that I will never be part of politics. It's too hard. I wrote my "found poem" last night, from the words of the public and the supervisors...





Forgive the napkins
Forgive the spelling
These are the words
Floating in the air

  2. Words float from inside out
    to relieve tensions and
    point out inconsistencies.

    Great idea to find a poem at a budget meeting.

  3. Bear with us, sad, sad, I'm sad...
    Where do we go from here?
    Let's just keep writing
    poetry.

  4. Hey, J.K. Rowling started Harry Potter on a napkin! Maybe this is a sign of good things to come!
