Phone Number Poem

By: Dean Roggenbauer

3 Soccer ball rolls
6 Across the field lightning fast to.
3 Trap. Then pass.

5 The ball goes on down
7 The field and they send the ball
8 Into the middle the ball goes and into
7 The goal and they score then GOAL!

Heat

Six people in a room sitting
Heat
The middle of the room was burning down quietly
Two people fled
Three on their phone
One person reading a book
Fire consumes the furniture
One more person flees
Three people sitting in a room

Water

Water: Elliot Bochey

Dark, heavy, and wavy, but darkness falls
Showing all creatures

Salty but tasteless and many
Many miles of it

There is
Also another form
Clear, cold, and pure

Both ways
Are considered dihydrogen monoxide: water

Christmas

Christmas
The snow falls on the leafless tree
The lights on the neighbor’s house is the prettiest sight to see
The hot cocoa and marshmallows add the feeling of delight
The star on the tree never has shined so bright
The family spends time making treats
Every threat is made so sweet
The presents make me smile
I’ve been waiting awhile
A holiday I wouldn’t pass
Christmas

Today’s Fight

today is not the day to
stand down
today is not the day to
take cover
today is not the day to
fall back

today is the day to
rise up
today is the day to
fight back

for our sisters
persecuted
proclaimed
beautiful

for the people
undone for being
themselves
and the love they feel

for the dreamers
who will not be silenced
the most American of
all of us

for anyone
oppressed
deprived
unable to see
the love through
the haze of fear

yes, there will be a day to
stand down
there will be a day to
fall back

but that day will only come when
the battlefield is
a sanctuary
the fire
a field of wildflowers
and the enemy
is walking home with us
hand in hand

The Look

O dog
don’t give me that look
that look of sadness
that look of desperation.
The look…
Like you’re all alone
and nobody loves you

Aren’t I the one who feeds you
who takes care of you
aren’t I the one you love

But no
You’re doing the look
you’re acting pitiful
but I see through you dog! ha
I know your game
your ideas
you’re trying to toy with my emotions.
But you can’t
you can’t
you can’t do it.
And now see what you’ve done
you’ve made me give in
and you’ll do it again

O dog

The Book 1/5 (1)

Some people treat my book with disrespect
They burn the book till
there is nothing left
Or sometimes they do the worst thing
Ignore the book
The book feels hollow and
worthless
Till one day I pick up
my book
I read the book a billion times
front to back
Squeezing all the despair and
sadness
The book now feels
Priceless

Boom

BOOM

I’m big I’m rough
I could be slim or buff
Or maybe even be nothing.

I can do big damage or
Make small cuts and burns and much more.

So be warned I can leave scars
And you better run because if I’m near you
Won’t see the star’s.

No more will be left.
