WVC Student Poetry Features: Carly Feddersen
Framed by knee-high grass
and broken lattice,
an old hot tub sits on end
next to a burnt-out water heater.
Two boys are eating
Fruity-Os at old school desks
bolted to the front porch.
"Take my picture,"
the older one shouts.
The younger one giggles
while both stretch smiles wide
across rainbow-flecked teeth.
I adjust the aperture, zooming in
on them, surrounded by old gears
and stacks of garbage.
I can hear their mother yelling
from the house,
"Who are you talking to?"
