Washington Square

the last word of every 2nd and 4th line in each stanza rhymes. I love when poems subtly rhyme its so satisfying but not cheesy.

this whole poem didn't really sound like a traditional poem. it sounded a lot like a song. like when I was reading it I couldn't help it but perceive it as a song.

It's so cool to see what union square looked like in 1911.

I don't really agree with this. if they know their truth and the truth would prove him innocent they should fight for his freedom.

It concerns me that they may not be able to provide for each other and her child. there both so young and at that time it was hard to find a well paying job for such young people.

everything about this paragraph makes it hard to believe Fonny isn't innocent. he's seems so respectful and caring.

thank youuu

shouldn't she be like… not drinking when she pregnant.

what did he want to say? why couldn't he say it?

this whole sentence confuses me so much lol.

yeahhh

I wonder why his faced changed in this way… it almost seems like he's getting pent up or tense.

what was she “doing” and why did her heart jump up?

this really shows how much they truly love each other. They really care about each other too.

ikrrrrr

I wonder what that has to do with anything.

I agree they seem un-welcoming

yeah that's definetly not a good idea. It can cause several problems with the baby and their development.

I wonder why he smiled.

how did the nickname “tish” come from clementine? Hoe did she get that nickname and why?

education is definitely one fo his top priorities.

I agree.

religion is also very important to him and It seems to help him in all sorts of ways and can be almost like an escape.

he talks about his religion in such a way that makes me think he's not very comfortable in the environment its created for him.

I'm wondering the same thing

this shows how much hatred has been put into religion and how its used for forcing people to do things and to make up of bad things people have done.

This is showing how much white people actually enjoyed being racists and harm black people. It didn't just happen, they enjoyed it. So much so that they would be happy to see their black servants do something wrong.

here he's really showing what it was like to be a black man then. no matter how much money you make and how successful you become it doesn't matter. You don't have main control over your life.
