Linny – SOL Day 15

Linny had a cast.

It wrapped his entire leg

like baked coconut.

I carried his books

from class

to class

to class

to class.

I could hear

his pain

when he breathed.

He hobbled,

his whole body stiff.

I think I was inside

that cast with him.

  1. Great imagery in your poem that make this an almost direct experience. There is a sense of vagueness also, that makes this poem universal, too…I love the line that suggests that Linny’s cast was like baked coconut. What you’ve shared here makes a reader want more…how did Linny hurt his leg? Why did you decide to help? Love this.
