My daughter and I picked a favorite from each of the child artists. These drawings, or ones like them, will be curated into the Poetry Scores Art Invitational to "Ever-Ready Bank Accounts" on May 18 at Mad Art.
Each piece is titled by the phrase in the poem that inspired it, and they appear in the order their titles appear in the poem, which is how we hang our art invitational shows.
Arms stacked too full of loaves
Children slay the cockroach for a meal
The mind of hungered innocence
Kebab of houseflies
Rats are sleeker now
A fortune when he farts
Seven ... lies
Monster for a home
