AFRICA POEM (2): SO WHAT WOULD YOU DO, TUNA JUICE

As soon as I get that Heather Christle poetry post written (will have to get the book first, it's in the mail) another book and beverage will be up. Or maybe I'll write about another book in the interim. 

For now, my sister needs help. If you have any advice to offer Katie, you should--she is a friend in need: what should she eat? Notice the internal rhyme between the a's in date and ache (second-to-last line). Good stuff. FamilyGchatPoems:

katie:  i'm goooood

it's the only dinner option since i dont have any water

  1. Katie!! You're making me hungryyyyy! I think you need to drink the tuna juice for hydration. The sodium will help you retain water so as not to become dehydrated. That is what I say. And in the meantime, keep poeticizing your food afflictions.
