Here’s a few more poems by our Foster Park 6th graders inspired by Joy Harjo’s “Perhaps This is Where the World Ends”.
At the lunch table we talk and gossip
The conversations are so funny, secrets
told, someone’s bad, eating food while talking
talking, expressing, telling stories, interesting, funny
after the talk, we just play
hand games, cool, fun, better than none
we’re just having fun.
When I’m at the kitchen table I sleep
When I’m at the kitchen table I play my game
When I’m at the kitchen table I watch the game at the computer
When I’m at the table I eat, the food be good.
When I’m at the table, I play spades with my uncle.
When I’m at the kitchen table I cry.
Thing is the kitchen table isn’t only about eating you can
do a lot of things at the kitchen table.
