In honor of April, National Poetry Month, I thought I would post a poem my brother Steve wrote. Enjoy.


Wal-Mart on Saturday

No sleeves.
Little boy,
Why hair so long?
Only one strand.
Nascar... everything

Yeah, that's great and all, but does it bug anyone else that George Lucas waited like twenty five years to make the first three episodes of Star Wars, and then he casts a horrible actor to play Darth Vader? Maybe the guy could have been on the O.C., but fucking Darth Vader? And Jar Jar Binks? Oh and if R2D2 could fly, why didn't he in episodes 4-6? Good poem though, the National Geographic Channel should dedicate some shows to studying white trash. It is a fascinating culture...

A wise man once told me that Joe Martel didn't get enough hugs as a child to which I simply replied, "Don't worry, Joe Martel is so boss.."

Great poem. Really. One day last week was "poem in your pocket day." This was just not something I was inspired to do with my students.

What really bothers me is not the disturbing yet funny depiction of Enumclaw by that zealous anonymous commenter, but the date of the most recent post. It is not the 13th!! I know because I stalk your blog.

I had completely forgotten about "booking" people until just now and now that I recall it, it's all I want to do. What about sevvies suck, Mountain View Video, Dutch Treat/Yo Subs, calling mom on the payphone outside the office because you missed the activity bus, those sick brown leather jackets that had a map lining on the inside, the red store, Vaurnet, little plastic circles you could slide your t-shirt into, 8th grade converse, Above the Rim Hoopwear, Oakley Thermonuclear Protection but don't touch them because they get scratched so easily and then you're out 100 dollars, that big silver thing at Westwood we called "The Spider," also the cement tunnel at Westwood, also the dirt bike trails at Westwood where Sparky and Lance puked after dipping Skoal and after we perhaps unwisely egged a bunch of cars on Halloween in 7th grade.

That April 13th dating is super weird! I am not sure why it did that! Time warp. Hey, have you done "I Am" poems with your class before? A 9th grade teacher at Enumclaw used to do them with her students and I just did them with mine, it was really fun! Here is a link to a specific "poem generator" http://ettcweb.lr.k12.nj.us/forms/iampoem.htm or you can just google "I am poem" and get a lot of options for variations. Let me know what you think!

thank you for the inspiration.Now I feel compelled to write a poem just like it depicting the thriving metropolis of Silver City.Where: there is actually no silver but copper,the answer for just about everything is "Just Shoot It!",there's an ongoing battle to dig up the body of Billy the Kid that may or may not be there,rabid fox,people that bathe in pee,people still think "You might Be A Redneck" jokes are funny and new,magical painted buses pass through and swear they've never been there before,Wal-Mart IS the place to be,there was a whore house until 1970,burning the coffee is aristocratic,most families think that if the "Dad" has a license they can all legally share it, and people protest about protesting with signs that say simply "Shame On You"

Tom Maks' mom dated Tim Noah. This information made Tom close to god-like in 3rd grade for an entire day.

Enumclaw Free Verse II - horse farms, cow barns, what do you do? construction, beer, repeat, j.j. junkyard, where's the enumclaw-buckley road sign ?, few know. breath-taking mullet perms from "ladies & loggers," school dance, lights low, cafeteria, AC/DC "back in black" guaranteed, several times, maybe a little journey, flaming geyser, pete's pool- where was all the water?, will buddy ever not smile? chew? yes. do you play football? yes. not anymore son. girls from auburn, dicks from buckley, why confederate flag so far from south? dukes. hazard a guess. tools. that part of the safeway parking lot by the movie sign, many trucks, so tall, super swampers thornbirds...envy

totally that part of the Safeway parking lot by the movie theater.

To the tune of "Ryan Started the Fire aka We Didn't Start the Fire"

Pterodactyl, Grassy Knoll
Randy is on school patrol
Cherry, Osher, Terhaar, three
barrel-chested faculty.
Mr. Cook's!
Scorpions!
What else do I have to say?

In junior high I thought it was completely acceptable to wear a white turtle neck and a kansas city royals starter jacket for most days i was there. did anyone mention "the pit" yet? i was always on the fringe seating, ironically a metaphor for life.

Mike and I spent nearly a whole afternoon trying to imagine what Danny Hopper would look like with a massive barrel chest. We imagined him breathing these huge deep breaths because his lungs were oversized and just walking around in stretched out t-shirts.
