Kathmandu Cook (age 12)

SALMON

It should be easy to write art
But it isn’t
It should be easy to love you
But it isn’t
When we were south of Wales
You yelled at her but she was dead
And now it should be easy
But it isn’t

from 2014 Rattle Young Poets Anthology

Why do you like to write poetry?

Kathmandu Cook: “I like to write poetry because I love the words.”
