Writing from Ms. Olsen’s 4th hour class, featuring Keota Phouthavong.
By Keota Phouthavong
Home. The noises of movies
Kids arguing over iPods, the cry
Of a baby, my mother in the kitchen
And my dad fixing something.
Home. The smell of rice or food
In the air, the beautiful hums that my mom
Sways to. Kids laughter.
Songs of all kinds.
