Just wrapping up First Draft. Two last installments before the summer.

The first is from Adam Lopez, an 8th grader down in Wallowa:

Important Things by Adam Lopez

“These are my dogs that make me feel nice,

This is my home that had a few mice,

This is a tree that looks like it’s going to eat a chicken,

This is our playhouse with a little kitchen,

This is uncle, holding who-knows-what,

This is a picture of a hill, and a hut

A better view of the kitchen

A picture of home without a chicken

This is my favorite book

And this is my favorite pic to look.”

And the second is from Cash McQuown, a Sophomore at Alt-Ed:

And then the night came/ when the risk to remain sane/ was more painful than going crazy.
