Listen to four poems
Read the four poems
Choose one line and respond.
This poem reminds me of...
One word, the heart of this poem, why this word?
What question does your poem seem to answer? What argument does this poem make?
In groups, share your answers.
Write a poem "in the spirit of this poem." Reflect and write on:
How do you read a poem?
What do you notice in poems?

phrases from poems. Mirror by Allison H.
I look in the mirror.
see my reflection.
I find fear,
terror in thinking what could
be behind me.
Light comes through the door,
the glass has broken.
My hand is injured
Blood is everywhere.

I feel like my world is corrupt.
Tainted by the things that ruin lives.
I live by a code to keep me moving forward,
Only to be taunted by short-term pleasures.

I hear life is best
when you have a plan.
I wait for the people
see, the ones with values
is the one who succeeds.
