During our poetry unit, we had the privilege to collaborate with graphic design students from the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Each graphic designer set out to design forms and distribute our poems in unique ways that addressed the central message of each poem. Below you can see my poem’s design by Madeline Enjoy!

As a class we recently finished reading the Gold Cadillac by Mildred D. Taylor. This book tells the story of a Black family during the 1950’s during the civil rights movement. These diaries were written by students from the perspective of one member of this family, either ‘lois, the youngest daughter, father, or mother as the family faces discrimination, segregation, and racism.

I was in my house in the living room sitting on a black couch.

Then I got squirted with water. First, i don't know who it was. But then I looked to

the side. Then they squirted me again and I was really mad.

Then I had a water fight and we used water bottles and the color was clear plastic


We wet everywhere’ thing the couch and the tv and my sister’s Xbox and our

controllers and stairs and my blanket.

She didn't find out but we got in trouble my mom was laughing but we had to

clean up and we had to wait until it dried off.

The next day it wasn't dried off yet so we had to for one hour. Then it was all good

the stairs were dried off Xbox controllers were dried off and the tv and

couch and my blanket.
