Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

My Early Works
My mom recently gave me an old scrapbook she had been keeping of my schoolwork. I just had to post a few of the most memorable things!
Oh my. If you can embiggen this lovely painting from second grade, you'll see that I have small children hanging from the ceiling and other children sad and crying at their desks, writing "I will be quiet." I swear I have no memory of what traumatic incident prompted this! Scary.
I think this is from first or second grade. Some of my first poetry!
I guess it didn't work-that's why Jewish kids don't ask Santa for things!
