The MS 8 series of poems by 6th graders.
Family and fantasy, the flat sheet and the volume, the visual and the literary, a room full of words. I love this poem. I would have posted it right away but his photo was not among the seventy-five pictures of poets I took on that day. I managed to photograph him on the last day of school. On to seventh grade Maciej. I hope you get many books, write some more poems, and have a personal library of your own some day.
Books are my obsession
my room is filled
with thousands of pages
Epic poems, fantasy, classics, horror
tales of olden days fill my
I inherited my dad’s and bought mine
I have no place to put them
I need to buy more.
