A French Trespasser to an American Hero by Nathan

     For my poem I wanted to keep the same style for each of my lines. I wanted to start the sentence with with either a A or An, and focus on one object at a time. I tried to expierment with my peom and see if I could make my poem enjammed, but when it was finished I wasn't as happy with the results as I was the finished poem. Another style I tried to use in my peom was no punctuation, instead I wanted the lines to be the stopping points for the reader. As par of my revisions I added who stated the quotes in the poem instead of just having the quotes by themselves. In addition I changed some of the words I used to expland the diction and added a few more lines. I hope you all enjoy the poem.
A French Trespasser to an American Hero

A dream to walk in the sky between two buildings
A goal to be a bird among the clouds
An idea that seem impossible
A strategy created by breaking into the twin towers

A complex plan with a bunch of simplicity

An obsession made a reality

 A rope 1,368 feet in the air

A fearless, fun filled, French man

A crowd of people gathered to watch from below

“An echo of people cheering and screaming” says Philippe Petit

A man on a rope for 45 minutes

A rope with a man crossing it 8 times

A view like no other in the world

A call to the police to make sure there is no splat

An officer greeted to a man floating in the sky

“A tightrope dancer because you couldn’t call him a walker” says an officer

A man trespassing on a bird’s land, and the knowledge that it’s time to leave

A crime charged with 14 misnomers, but all charges dropped

A French trespasser to an American hero
