Hurray for Occupoety - "American History"

Gees Bend Quilt - House
Today I'm officially an Occupoet. The sight Occupoetry is run by folks at UC Davis and I'm really happy to have "American History" up today.

Here are the first few lines --



American History


Someday soon I'll be saying at school


there were chalkboards, at school
we read books made of paper, 


we drank milk from small cartons. We drew.
At school we liked children unlike us


studied evolution, enjoyed recess, plenty of food.


At school we made globes of papier-mache,
built solar systems democratized in sugar cubes.
