Writing From the Road: Roseau, Minnesota

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.
