It’s clearly a shell

(photo credit: Greenville County schools)

“It’s clearly a shell”
his voice sincere,
his face earnest.

I’d been begging for weeks
to be excluded from art,
to do something I was good at,
so I’d been sent to Mr. Hoskin.

Now he was reassuring,
now he was encouraging,
but with those words
“It’s clearly a shell”
I knew I’d won the argument.

I simply replied
“Sir, it’s my shoe!”

For some poetry accompanied by real art try Mike McGuire’s Fire Art
