Michael

I wrote this list poem years ago. Today, September 15, 2013, Michael is 33, not 15. I used it for the Poetic Bloomings prompt to write a list poem.


Fifteen 
Five foot eight and growing 
Student 
Joyfully out of school 
Occasional worker at the Wednesday Journal 
One who critiques his mother’s 
           Words 
           Sighs 
           Actions 
           Dinners 
           Poems—He once edited a useless word from my poem 
                           and he was right. 

Teenager
