Have you tried using I statements?❔
I was not one because I was in love
Heeeeeeelloooooooo! How are you this week? Oh, you’re wondering how I am? I am doing well! Wow, we’ve had such a fun time with Eliot Duncan’s PTK takeover! We still have one more thing in store for you that will be coming out very very soon, but until the we really need to get back to our regular Wednesday poetry schedule! So, here I, Larissa, am! Surprise! This is my poem response to Eliot’s deep (despite what he may say) first person essay from last week! I hope u like!
Have you tried using I statements?
Cause I find it very difficult to deal when I am struck by lightning, I cannot keep having the same talk over and over it’s like I am, not a clock, more seismological, so a pendulum, exactly the same as I saw at the Griffith observatory, where I was with a million other tourists but, I was not one because I was in love, I was more in love then all the other tourists who thought they were, though when I think back to it maybe I wasn’t anymore, because my green skirt was too tight, and I would soon mourn the doubly missed penalties, because I have stuck around for another four years, because I had to learn to dodge the swinging, because I decided I was a poet, because I have found the joy of counting my losses. Because I didn’t become us because of you.
Your poetry assignment this week is to write and ode to a Foucault Pendulum!
I love you!
