Editor’s Note: Camilla, a 19-year-old intern at 826 Seattle, has selected some excellent work that 826 students are producing this summer to share with us on Push To Talk. This is the third installment in that series.
Camilla’s Note: This poem is wildly imaginative and totally unexpected. The acrostic structure, which can often feel creatively confining, is used here as license to go crazy with the topic.
Elephants (An Acrostic)
By Gin, age 5
Elephants are grumpy
Elephants fly all over the world
Pull the earth out of outer space
Hats wear elephants
An elephant is tiny
No elephant ever came to Earth
Trees are silly
So elephants are always going to be on Mars
