The Last Time by Rachel McKibbens- I like the Poem because although it is short you get a lot of context by the way she organizes her stanzas’. Her emotion is shown by the last two sentences.

The Older Generation by Ha Jin, I like this poem because of its imagery, also this is what I would think about the generations before us, many things were considered taboo.

Body of Rags, International Bridge Between the US and Mexico by Ray Gonzalez, I enjoy reading this poem because it is the authors response to a poem by William Carlos Williams. I love the response Gonzalez gave it had a powerful message.

Tsunami Rising by Staceyann Chin, I loved the poem when it was introduced in class, I was drawn to this poem by the choice of her words and in the way she also reads the poem with such passion.
