Imagist Poem

In this poem, I attempted to emulate the Red Wheelbarrow by William Carlos William, specifically his simplistic writing style that focuses on imagery.

I emphasised the simplicity through enjambement by breaking up the 3 sentences that made up the piece. Additionally, I started a new stanza for almost every sentence, save for the last clause.


Roasted Ethiopian


Brown, velvety, richness

coating my tongue.


A life source

for all students


Running through my



keeping me alive.
