Kristin Elizabeth Clark
A pronoun is a ghost
of who you really are
whispering its presence
taunting your soul
Struggling my own

I see a title like "Pronoun" and I think I'm getting a grammar poem... and, of course, I am... but oh my, Kristin Elizabeth Clark delivers so much more. This, you'll probably not be shocked to hear, is yet another item on my list of "things Greg loves about poetry."
a nice list of resources to go with the book, as well.)
Yes, I do love the range of powerful poetry out there. So I'm excited to be able to share Kristin Elizabeth Clark's verse here with you today, looking forward to her October debut, and thrilled to have her as part of 30 Poets/30 Days.
What about some more poetry! Head on over and check out the Poetry Friday roundup today held over at Irene Latham's Live Your Poem blog. Tons of great poetic goodness going on in the Kidlitosphere all month, and you can see a ton of it in one place.
Tomorrow... Jenny Whitehead brings us The Litterbug. For more on 30 Poets/30 Days and ways to follow along, please click here.
