A Poem About Ocean Animals and the Internet
I finished a summer poetry series and I’m sharing one of the poems I wrote during these 7-week period. I wrote this poem after listening to Trapeta Mayson writing poetry to create order in our chaos. She said that poetry can be a tool to name the season we’re in so that we can envision ourselves moving forward. I hadn’t considered what it would mean to name my season while I’m in it.
