I am so excited! I am going to read my poem, Living my History Book, during the Utah Philharmonic Orchestra memorial 9/11 concert. It’ll be on September 10th, 2016, in Draper Utah. Click HERE to go to the UPO page for details about the concert. Join me LIVE this Thursday at 7pm MST for a prereading of my poem.
Living my History Book
I wake up at 5AM.
September means work, not play.
My alarm is loud and I’m off to school,
just like any other day.
The engine roars as I turn the key.
My books fall to the floor.
“Oh, It’s just Writing and History…
Who needs those anymore?”
When I turn the radio on,
I switch to NPR.
I go to school with tears in my eyes
and sloppily park the car.
I run into class. The news is on.
I sit down and take a look.
That’s when I realize
I’m living my history book.
