WHAT I WANT TO DO MOST OF THE TIME

It feels like I need
To go to my dad’s house
And when I’m at my dad’s house
I want to go to my mom’s house
I want to be at both houses

from 2014 Rattle Young Poets Anthology

Why do you like to write poetry?

Jo’lene Dailey: “I love poetry because when you are home schooled or at home, you can talk about anything you want, like ponies. Because ponies are great and poetry is nice.”
