    Old Poems from Ms. Persin

    Post by mspersin on Wed May 26, 2010 11:30 pm

    Some poems I wrote in 2001 (When you were 3! ha!) about the environment. Ask me if you want to see more environment poems. You can reply to this poem (and tell me what you think) or you can reply to the intial OLD POEMS post and post your own old poems!

    OLD POETRY

    They haven't found a way to recycle it yet
    So this is what happens to old poetry:

    It lines the bottoms of library shelves
    Cowering in thin volumes, centered
    in the yellow drear of stale and starchy pages
    That stick together indefinitely with perfumes
    Dripped from librarians' shaky wrists.

    It is spoken about sometimes in
    Selective university circles, Xeroxed,
    The poet's name memorized because it rhymes with "fussy"
    And he used the word "auxiliary" twice.
    That's repetition.

    And of course, it is buried with its creator
    Who truly understood the beauty of the semicolon.
    Who rests peacefully not knowing how seldom
    we crouch down to the bottom shelves
    craning our necks and holding our breaths
    As we open the sticky pages to graze.

    Am I the only one with old poems? C'mon!

    Here's one I wrote during my student teaching. I was co-teaching a class of eleventh graders:

    Seven Twenty

    Students walk through the double doors
    Their cheeks still pinched pink from the wind
    Their arms long and gangly, like monkeys
    Baring their teeth.

    The sound of lockers opening and shutting
    Books dropping to the floor
    From clumsy hands
    Overpowers the sound of my teacher shoes.

    Two monkeys hug one another in a corner
    Their arms tangled in each other's hair
    Picking out the lice and louse eggs
    Exchanging breakfasts

    And I let them.
