Battle Of The Glassblowers - Poem by Rhonda Baker

The battle of the glassblowers in Kalamazoo
Sitting with anticipation in an old church pew
Gaffers from as far as Chicago and Detroit
To show of their talent, and some glass to exploit
Making things they normally, never would do
A chicken, an elephant, and a spider web too
Laughing and joking, making things out of glass
All with a time limit. They’ve got to move fast!
Not everything made it… that is just life
All glassblowers know it, and except that strife
