Upside-Down–A Poem

Good morning, friends! I wrote this free-verse poem for my creative writing course. I hope you enjoy it and it brings a smile to your face!


My dad thinks poetry is stupid.

He says poets simply decide to hit enter

randomly

without any good reason.

Why can’t this all be

one line?

What makes this one

word

so special it deserves a line of its own?

My dad likes things like right angles

And strategy games

And big books of theology

And cinnamon cookies

And Ohio State football

He designs pumps and understands math,

but when he reads poems,

He wonders if they would make more sense

Upside-down
