People's Poetry

gillianquote poems
(daughter #3 at seventeen)

I have to write
a canterbury tale
tonight . . .
how long did it take
chaucer?

here’s its stem
potatos always seem
so self sufficient
you don’t think of them
as having stems

I have a right
to say UGH
if I find a task
distasteful

elspeth’s new kitten
will have a hard time
developing his personality
second cats always do
