an online journal of student writing
In the dining room chat chat chat
The first snow falling.
Iím talking with Penny.
Here two months. Whiz
I duck as a snowball whizzes across the room
Landing on my momís French horn caseósplat.
I notice my mom standing in the doorway
Throwing another oneósplatóit scrapes
My hair. She
throws one at Penny. It hits
Her on the shirt as she stands in shock.
We throw some snow back at her.
Dad comes in the room.
are all in trouble.
And thatís how we introduced Penny to snow.
