Chug, chug

More writing this morning. Went well. Today I’ll be subbing (that’s substitute teaching not submitting) and then tonight there is a family poetry reading at my kids’ school. Here is the one I plan to read from a larger collection of poems entitled DC for Me. It is a non-fiction poetry book about DC neighborhoods. Very difficult to get published as it is pretty narrow in scope but you’d think that I book on our nation’s capital would be of interest to all.


My Neighborhood
By Anna J. Boll

After school,
streetlights
spotlight
my neighborhood
Shepard Park.

Kickball games
four square and
double dutch

Tick-tick
Double ropes
slip,slap the black.
Feet dance, trip,
tangle,whip
over the ropes
just in time.
Out.

Next in line,
then dinner time.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
