Second Hand Story-Found Poem
Your birthday’s coming up, Ingrid.
What, where Mama? I just see clouds.
No, Ingrid, I mean your birthday’s coming soon.
A few days-from now.
Tomorrow? When I wake up?
No-in a little while.
Maybe a big while, Mama?
Yes, a few days, after school is through this week.
After school, when we get home?
No, after more days of school, at the end
of the week.
What, when is the week end?
Just wait, Ingrid, your birthday's coming up!
birthday to celebrate
cupcake monsters, piece of cake
gifts surprised and candles lit
blew them out and made her wish
