The Poetry of Emma Schwenker

Stumbling around.
Crashing
cans
cut
me.
Crashing
captain
bottle.
Father,
crashing,
stumbling around.

***
Pain

I flinch.
Pain.
Bloody
round
fist.
Pain,
waiting
for
more
pain
I flinch.

Emma Schwenker is a junior at Arrowhead Union High School and enjoyed writing Skinnys. Schwenker likes to play soccer and get together with her friends in her free time. This is her first time composing Skinnys. Relatedly, she reports that she is “glad when she considers the reach of her work,” especially in the context of how her readers may relate to her poetry.
