Mr. Kenney's sophomore English class poetry analysis powerpoint-"The Cities Inside Us"


<ul><li> 1. The Cities Inside Us Alberto Rios</li></ul> <p> 2. We Live in Secret Cities 3. And we travel unmapped roads. 4. We speak words between us that we recognize But which cannot be looked up . 5. They are our words. They come from deep inside our mouths You and I, we are the secret citizens of the city inside us, 6. And inside us There go all the cars we have driven and seen, There are all the people We know and have known, 7. There are all the places that are But which use to be as well. 8. This is where they went. They did not disappear. 9. We each take a pieceThrough the eye and through the ear. 10. LOUD Inside us in there, Its 11. And when we speak in the outside world 12. We have to hope that some of thatSOUND does not come out, That an armNot reach outIn the place of a tongue.</p>
