It Seems 

I Test

People

    By James Berry, p. 196

 

My skin sun-mixed like basic earth (line 1)

my voice having tones of thunder (line 2)

my laughter working all of me as I laugh (line 3)

my walk motioning strong swings (line 4)

it seems I test people (line 5)

Stanza 1

Always awaiting a move (line 6)

waiting always to recreate my view (line 7)

my eyes packed with hellos behind them (line 8)

my arrival bringing departures (line 9)

it seems I test people (line 10)
