February is waning have you worked on your concrete poem yet? A poem of structure and form? February is a month of humans looking for a rodent's shadow, cupids shooting hearts with love tipped arrows, remembering the great Presidents of our country and most importantly the celebration of the rich culture of African Americans. Here is a poem that celebrates the African American culture and, you guessed it, it is a concrete poem.
By Trishula Patel

Not So Square Poem


I set out to write

A poem in a square

But no change of words

Could keep it from becoming

The trapezoid it was meant to be.
