Two Poems

They may suck, but since I had to write them for an assign­ment I fig­ured I’d share them here as well.

Sum­mer Camp

You dash to your new home
Guid­ed by smells
bug spray and sunscreen
Girls’ voic­es squeal­ing, laughing
Hid­den by the trees
You leave us behind
We fol­low with your trunk
Lum­ber­ing through the brush
The camp swal­lows you
As we return to our world.


Your eyes are in her face
Can you see the sprouts
push­ing their way up?
Smell the fecund ground
Feel the rain starting
She isn’t look­ing at them
Intent on the goal
Shout­ing to girl­friends ahead
Through her you live.
