HARDWARE STALL by Jack, Misu, Timothy & Binh, age 9 & Angelina, age 8







Hardware Stall
By Jack, Misu, Timothy, Binh & Angelina 


Bottles jailed in plastic linger on the shelf, and tubes of glue dangle from the ceiling. 
Cans of spray paint roost in cabinets 
like sleeping canaries.
Behind the counter, 
the owner’s teeth 
sink into a chunk of apple.
Light pours onto her cheekbone,
eyes lock on the unknown.

Above her,
tape measures hang like 

spiders from silk.

Here is the same piece as a graphic poem with illustrations by the whole class!
