  1. 1. Papa’s Fishing Hole-Narrative Poem I place my tiny hand in his as we walk to Papa’s Fishing Hole. I hand him a wiggling night crawler fighting for his life. The deadly hook squishes through the worm’s head, and I watch the brown guts ooze out. Papa throws the pole’s long arm back and then forward. The line lands in a merky spot along the reedy shore. Now I get to reel it in. Nothing yet, he says. He casts again. I reel it in. Still nothing. Three time’s a charm, he says. He casts.
  2. 2. Washed Away Nothing's changed except me and the facts And the sadness I didn't mean to start. But it feels different now you've said It's wrong, and I still can't see your point.

Instead of hot sauce, They gave me snot sauce, Now my tongue is gooey when I talk. And instead of candy bars They gave me sandy bars, Now my mouth is full of rocks.

  7. 7. Repetition of the same sounds at the beginning of words or in syllables. Canvas in creative colors Painter paints to persuade people; Sends surprises to spectators’ sight, And wide-ranging wonder world wide; Like lighting the love in one’s life, Arts in it is an asset from above!
