Invisiphilia: An Epic

PART 4: CAMP

I wonder what the other kids

are doing on their break—

Learning to count calories, shun

pasta, meat, and cake?

Learning how to deal with hunger

(biting sharp like knives)?

Running laps until they vomit—

—running for their lives?

  1. The epic itself is well done, but I just adore the last four lines. Running for their lives? I only wish I thought of that.

  2. Wow, great work. Poetry is my love!

      Thanks, Ashley, I appreciate it. I wouldn’t ever call myself a poet, but I do love poetry. To me, Gerard Manley Hopkins’ “The Windhover” is as close to literary music as one gets.
