We may be heading into summer but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate work from this year’s beautiful poetry residencies. Below is a poem from Hale’s own Abe the Ape!
My Modern Days
by Abraham P.
I love watching football, but when I
play, I’m trash. Besides that, I play
with my toys. I play with Lincoln logs
magic tracks and and xshot guns. When I
play with Lincoln, I go to builder
mode while I feel the woody logs
on my hand. On the other hand, magic
tracks — it’s really nothing, just me
watching the car going in circles with
it’s high light brightening the tracks in the
dark. And finally xshot guns. It is
so fun, I get to aim at anything I want
except breakable things and my sister.
Gee whiz, I wish the day had more than just
24 hours and the week more than 7
days and also that my parents let me have a
game console. Oh well, that’s the way
