This is where poems get posted up. I've always liked poetry... lacking the skill to illustrate with paint, and only beginning to learn how to express thoughts and feelings in wood and metal, I still believe deeply in the profound nature of the personal poem. 

Would you like to post a poem here? You can! But you'll need to submit it via email ( mailto:mwc1936@lausd.net ) for Mr. Chow's approval. Almost anything submitted in earnest will be accepted... however, here are some ground rules.
  1. No explicit profanity
  2. No sexually explicit material
  3. No explicit drug references
Mr. Chow realizes that there is a lot of art out there that has all of this, and more. And, Mr. Chow also believes in freedom of expression, even when what is expressed may not be what he agrees with. However, this is an extension of our classroom - and our classroom is still that of a high school in Los Angeles. In other words, rules apply to us in this setting that may not apply in the future. 

I'll post some poems up so you can get an idea of what is acceptable. Let's start with one by e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me by E. E. Cummings
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
