This year, KUT is participating in National Poetry Month by sharing poems written by students in the Blank Page creative writing programs at Kealing and Fulmore Middle Schools and the Writers' Workshop at Rawson Saunders School. You can read the and listen to the poems here, and you can also listen to the poems read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.


Read by Jodi Egerton

I am a rubix cube

Rough around the edges

But smooth in some places

Not too many people can solve my mysteries

I’m confusing

But I try to make people happy

Though it doesn’t always work out

Certain things click with me

And all my colors align

Some dark but mostly bight

I am solid and hard to break

Spend a little time with me

And maybe you can figure me out
