Poem-On-Demand: Jedi

This afternoon I was one of four poets talking with some students at the Research Triangle High School. We covered the basics of our background in life and poetry then we gave them a live demonstration of Poetry-On-Demand. We asked them to put some words in the the chat (this was online, of course) and we each picked a word and wrote a poem in about two minutes. One of the kids offered “lightsaber” and I couldn’t resist.


Lost my childhood
Raised by monks
Don’t think this
Don’t feel that
Practice Practice Practice
I’m tired of being Forced
to use this flashlight in the dark
give me a real Lightsaber
so I can show my worth

Thank you, Pamela Taylor, for including Chris Abbate, Tara Lynne Groth and I.
