Poetry Friday: Hey, You!

For this Poetry Friday installment, I have chosen to share with you the book Hey, You! This book is a collection of poems written by a variety of poets, and selected by Paul B. Janeczko. The one thing these poems have in common is that they are written "to" objects and animals such as skyscrapers and mosquitos. I like the short poem "Skyscraper" by Dennis Lee:

Skyscraper, skyscraper,
Scrape me some sky:
Tickle the sun
While the stars go by.
