    The Good in the Evil world - Rebecca Hazelton

    I chose the poem "The good in the evil World" by Rebecca Hazelton.  Or, rather, it chose me.  The poem intrigued me, yet, at the same time, made me detached.  A line that particularly intrigued me is, “Before the...

    • Dear Heather:
      I am loving your poem, “my childhood,” because of how much a can relate to it on a personal level. it makes me reminisce on the past and makes me kinda miss early middle school.
      One line that stands out for me is, “I remember getting stains from Crayola markers on my fingers”. I think this line is amusing because this used to happen to me all the time. so much so that I don’t think there was I time that my hands were clear.
      Another line that stands out for me is,  “I remember playing on the tire weel swing at the park”. I like this line because of how much I can relate to it. a park right near my house has these 2 big trie swings that my 4 friends and I could fit on.
      Your poem reminds me of my childhood and it so nice to read.
      Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next.

    Heather commented on the post, Little town

    Dear Megan,
    I am fascinated by your poem, “Little town,” because it says so much about you. But at the same time it doesn’t reveal much.
    One line that stands out for me is, “And family of many generations. ”. I think this line is intriguing because what is it that made them stay.
    Another line that stands out for me is, “Littleton remains a p…Read More

The Good in the Evil world – Rebecca Hazelton

My childhood

I am from

My home

The poem has this descriptive language that gives me an idea of the setting imagery. The description reminds me of an old town.

The poem having period at the ending sticks out to me. Usually there isn't much punctuation in poems. It is also interesting how it ends with it.

The tone of this paragraph gives a relaxed environment. There is something about Nebraska that can make people feel relaxed.

The Nebraska life

The quiet life.

Life in a different state.

She has had a character development this far into the book. She has grown more independent and confident

I like how although Fonny is in jail they still have an strong relationship. They are still able to keep the bond that they have.

Opinion: I find it interesting that they think she isn't in the country. There first though was that she fled the country.

Opinion: I was shocked when I first read this paragraph. It is very explicit paragraph.

I think Fonny has this relationship with Daniel that is noticeable to all. She notices this since she pays a lot of attention to him.

I find it nice how Tish's mother doesn't want Tish to give up. It shows the bond that Tish has with her mother.

It is really nice the Tish's family includes Fonny. It shows how nice Tish and her family are.

Fonny is a trustworthy person. He seems to be loyal as well.

They are talking about Tish and Fonny getting married. She is saying that the oldest should get married first.

It's nice that they still are happy together even if their family is disapproving of things in their relationship.

This makes me wonder if Fonny's family would have a change in mind about the baby. This baby is causing so drama in the family.


There is nothing that they can do to stop the birth of the child. Even if they don't like their child they would still have it.

Why does she disprove the relationship of Tish and Fonny so much can she leave them alone for a while.

How is anyone fine being told this. Is she aware of what she is saying.


It seems that he thinks that they won't be in good hands. He knows that something is going to happen to his son.
