Our Lady of Lourdes Interparish School
Boone County, MO

I’m being eaten by imagination
It starts in my toes
Wiggles up my legs
Fills up my body
Flies to my head
Then explodes into my brain
Where it eats my thoughts
Burns my skull
Tells me everything

Then it seeps down my arm
And into my fingers

Now out my pen
Onto my paper
It draws a picture and dances ‘round
Glides across the blue line

It writes a story

A story for you and me
