THEME FOR AP Lit
The instructor said,
Go home and write
a page tonight.
And let that page come out of you---
Then, it will be true.
I wonder if it's that simple?
I am __________, __________, born in __________.
I __________, then __________, then __________
to this high school on the hill above Santa Clarita.
I am the only __________ in my class.
The steps from the hill lead down into __________
through a __________, then I cross __________,
__________, __________, and I come to __________,
the __________, where I take the __________
into my __________, sit down, and write this page:
It's not easy to know what is true for you or me
at __________, my age. But I guess I'm what
I feel and see and hear, __________, I hear you:
hear you, hear me---we two---you, me, talk on this page.
(I hear __________ too.) Me---who?
Well, I like to __________, __________, __________, __________
I like to __________, __________, __________, and __________.
I like a __________ for a Christmas present,
or records---__________, __________, or __________.
I guess being __________ doesn't make me NOT like
the same things other folks who are __________.
So will my page be __________ that I write?
Being me, it will not be __________.
But it will be
a part of you, __________.
You are __________---
yet a part of me, as I am a part of you.
Sometimes perhaps you don't want to be a part of me.
Nor do I often want to be a part of you.
But we are, that's true!
As I learn from you,
I guess you learn from me---
although you're __________---and not all __________---
and somewhat more free.
This is my page for AP Lit.
