Poem-a-Day April 2018 Writer’s Digest Challenge #14. Theme: Report

psc bldg 96

Starr Reporter

Starr was a crackerjack ink slinger
for The Scoop at Pence State College,
covering events such as the Modern Mime show,
put on by the ASL Lousy Poets Club
(a small group),
archery intramurals on Valentine’s Day,
(where Professor Kewpid was the target),
& The Great Brown-Bagged Fake n’ Bake Swap
from extra credit-hungry culinary students.

She treated her articles like she treated people–
making what the world deemed unimportant feel important,
for she’d been taught that genuine class
was neither in the threads of her clothes
nor in the strands of her DNA,
but in how she treated others.

    • Thanks, Stu. I didn’t want to be too obvious with the spelling, and the name became a hybrid of Cupid and a kewpie doll. 🙂
