    Brooks' 7th grade English teacher here... I thought of you tonight when I heard about the death of Hunter S. Thompson. Did a general web search for your name, which led me here. Not all that surprised, but proud to see you continued your writing journey. Remember the famous person I said you would be like someday? I still have a copy of your writing portfolio. I hope you and yours are doing well. I am still teaching, but not in KY. I am now in TN, happily married, with two little ones. Anyone who knows Brooks, email me and updat me on how he is doing these days. Thanks! ! !

Best Poem of Brooks Reitz


As I walk to the farmer's market,
just down the street
traces from yesterday's murder,
still draw crowds and the victims blood still reeks,
The guns and knives of this community,
are pulling us down,
making us weak.
And there are rats in our houses,
and the pipes leak.
Just a few days ago,
the boy across the street,
hung himself from his bunk bed,
because the boy's dad was mean,
and the boy was always beat.
It will get better,
everyone says,
but all around us,
people are dead.
are we living in a luxury?....zzzz....
