Dear Juan Felipe Herrera from Mariana

Dear Juan Felipe Herrera,

In your poem “All the Thoughts at a Football Game” is it based on your life? Why did you write this poem? What is so special about this poem to you? I like the part when it says how people are cheering and waving, because it brings positive stuff in mind.  Cheering and waving flags reminds me of the time I went to watch the Sunday marathons with my family.
