	POETRY CLASS

	By Diana Der Hovanessian


	My students are writing
	math poems
	invented by Aram Saroyan
	and named by 6th grader
	Laurie Burke.
	They are adding
	Loneliness to Happiness
	and getting Poetry.
	They are multiplying
	Twitching by Six hours
	and getting School.
	They are subtracting
	You from Me and
	getting Nowhere.
