My News Story

***Writing tip: Take key words from 3 different news stories and piece them together to make one poem. Here I used a railroad story (pose, photos, railroad tracks, eerie, echoes, severed), a prison story (guard posts, suicide, hope, earthquake, I, die), and a stress story (step, has become, fog, plod, churns, acute, pain, heart).***

My Story:
This bounce in my step has become a plod
I pose for photos and pretend to look the part
Eerie isolation clouds hope with acute pain
My heart echoes off cold railroad tracks
Hope is severed, torn in the earthquake’s ruins
Guard posts fog Mount Everest
Suicide leads my weak hand
In sluggish bow-tie churns I exist
….I die.
