For my WW Fenn piece I have selected, Scratch and Dent Dreams by Eric Darby. When I first heard this poem during class, I was hooked. The way Eric Darby recited his was inspiring. It was a story inside of a story that held hidden messages along the way, that meant a whole lot more than words. His use of metaphors and similes were unmatched, as he starts out his poem with "Come on in, I've got a sale." What sale? What is he talking about? I didn't understand at first, but that was why I was intrigued. I wanted to know what he was trying to say. And little did I know, what he had to say was a whole lot more than I thought. "I've got a sale" turns to him talking about his wasted dreams and lost time. I would never have guessed, but that is why the poem is great. Eric Darby has energized the way I look at poetry, and how it can be delivered. He has inspired me to take on the challenge of his poem and put my own spin on it.
