poem of the day (not to be confused with 'porn of the day')

This from James, a sophomore in my poetry class. It's his Author's Choice #3 selection, a haiku in need of a slight syllable adjustment in the last line but otherwise I think it's genius:


The snow is so white
I want to make a snowman
Then tackle his cold ass



Happy winter's day.

If you want to make things interesting, you could have him do a poem of the day on your porn of the day.

Just a thought!

Oh, Jenn. That makes me slightly uncomfortable on so many levels. If only you knew...

Mrs. G - He is definitely something; he got an easy 5 for Voice

Brandy - If so, he will need to be immediately forthcoming about certain leisure activities he participated in during HS...

That was a great haiku - extra syllable or no.
