Assembling links and mimicking poetry
by Mr. Sheehy
Beyond these scattered papers and intimidating due dates
I find strange things to do
during finals week.
Investigating the oral tradition in poetry
and the role of media in communicating a poem
has proved intriguing.
So have search engines,
which lead me to the depths of the National Archives, powered by Clusty—
and the discovery of a document “signed” by Sioux tribal leaders
with a simple column of x’s.
Oh, I was working then,
albeit in another browser’s tab,
on creating a research project — one steeped in works cited
rehearsal and resource evaluation.
Eventually I’ll have to grade those, but for now
I’ll head to the office next door, where my colleagues,
who are primarily mothers,
have assembled a feast upon the table.
Thanks for reading.
