THE FIRST TIME I SAW HER By Tran, JC & Anna, age 10 and Helen, age 9
THE FIRST TIME I SAW HER By Tran, Helen, Jessica C. & Anna L.
She was sitting on her preschool cot,
It was like the time I went to the
Hello Kitty store in Japantown
and picked up a stuffed
bunny and petted its soft ears,
lulling myself into
And like when I grabbed all those
the glittery musical notes,
all of that shimmer in between
peeling the shapes off of the
and sticking them on my wall
and Mom saying,
the landlord will be mad

TALL GIRL By Tran, Jessica C., Jessie, Wendy & Alex, ages 9-11
Tall Girl hops over kitten.
Tall Girl twirls
around the playground.
“Watch out for the wall.”
Tall Girl gallops to the library.
The donkeys here kick
books off shelves.
Tall Girl’s ear tears into
four furry bits that hear:
3. Shuffling pages
4. Silence. Shh!
Tall Girl reads about how to
regrow sadness. She wants to be alone.
Inspired by Anne Waldman’s poem “Fast Speaking Woman.”
