“La Vetura” Our Final Class!

In our final week at Dulles, we continued to refine and edit our poems to prepare for the Dulles Poetry Reading, with two other poetry classes led by Caroline Stevens and Joy Young from the Poetry Center. You can read more about how the reading went here! Thank you South Loop for a wonderful ending to our 5 week residency!

La Vetura

Remix of Francisco X. Alarcón’s On Monday I Feel Like a Dragon

By Dixxandre

el lunes de mañana
soy un puer coespin
como erizo de mar
listo para rugir
en cualquier
momento un gran llamarón



By Kendriana B.


My house has a ladder to my

bed. I went to the living room to watch TV

and I went to the kitchen too



By Maliyah V.


Chicago is a dog


to be specific my

grandma’s dog


The Haunted Bowling Alley

By Noreyay A.


The bowling alley was dark and

cold but Ally still wanted to explore.

She heard a weird noise and

instead of leaving she went closer.
