Inspired by Marianne Moore's poem, "The Fish"


The
fish galloping peaceful.
ducking & tucking,
in the deep
and
shallow, avoiding
and causing
trouble.
Looking
for food &
shelter.
- Stefan





The eagle
Soaring
through the air
like a heron trying to
find fish, like

a
big and fat tuna
fish swimming in the
water which is blue,
like
the sky but the
eagle gets confused
so he thinks that
he
gets a fish but he
bites a satellite
but it zaps
him
for almost an hour
until he lets go
like he got cooked,
like
new as fried
chicken on
a Sunday
night.
dinner plates
with marble
and glass
that
you can clean
all night.
- Maleek




The Pit bull!


Standing
there with her broad
shoulder waiting to take
charge to get her food
like
a furious bull at a
rodeo.
- Charles

The snake

Slither
cruising on the ground
enormous big veins
patterns on the back
Bites
lovely kids on couple’s
television thing being evil
killing kids it’s
Brutal
lives in holes and
slither through the
night and water
guess who
snack

- Tim





The Moon

Sleepy
never up in the middle
of the day only at night
very shiny at night
a sleepy head sometime
but give u light at night
- Bryanna
