eddie’s homework

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 11:00 pm


Little Eddie Markowski must have been one of those kids

who finished every test waaaay ahead of the rest of the class,

and then got an A+.    As an adult, he creates mountains of

enjoyable (and even admirable) haiku and senryu faster than

your teenage son polishes off a quart of orange juice — often,

in between performing his other workplace duties.  (Yes, I am

envious.)

 

Inspired by today’s back to school sale posting, Ed has      blackboard abcN

peppered its Comment box with a steady stream of poems.

I suggest you click here to enjoy all of them.   Here’s a sampler

of his homework on this first evening of the school year:

 

 

 







 

first day of school

the bus arrives

with fresh graffitti

 

 

 

 

 

first day

my first apple

bruised

 

 

 

 






blackboard abc

 





second day

my second apple

a granny smith

 

 

 


 

 

new dress code

the entire basketball team

tattooed



 

 




 

 

 


blackout

candlelight flickers

on her history book
