Poetry from the High School students
December 6, 2023
The following is a poem written by four Sophomore boys in answer to Nikki Giovanni’s poem “Woman” in which she uses five different pairs of images to describe what the woman wants from her “man.” But he will not be what she is hoping for, no matter how hard she works at the relationship. So, she moves on.
Wes Cox, Dolan Sunchild, Ty Terry, and Travis Wilford studied her point of view, and then they collaborated to write their poem from the man's point of view, using the same format with their original pairs of images. Enjoy!
