    Alejandro commented on the post, Coral

    Hey Zack! So based on reading this poem it’s about a piece of coral. You described the environment the coral was in and I can really picture it. I think it’s cool that you told the story of the coral, it seems like objects can tell stories!

      good poem, it show the star fish. the poem also helps people and readers understand how the star fish would
      feel when they touch it for the first time. it shows the features of the star fish. vary intersting poem. i would love to read more about the star fish.

    • Hey Al great poem very deep,after reading your poem I’ve come to believe that this poem is a metaphor for a insecure child.The “featured spikes” on the starfish are his insecurities taking over his body.Eating away at him,slowly sucking his “color” away,looking dead.He lays on his bed,still as a rock,what remains of him can now fit on a child’s hand but is soulless.

    • i liked how you described your star fish, better than taes

    • I think that this is very beautiful and the fact that this can be interpreted in so many different ways for different people is amazing. I like the structure of your poem a lot and it flows wonderfully and makes the ideas stand out and become more dramatic. I really enjoyed this and I hope that you write more poetry!
