Vassar Student Review


By Elena Schultz



two shoulders and my ladder

into the great blue beyond

(your name made sense

long before my tongue

untangled itself)




two tiny hands clutching cerulean

light for safekeeping

(you are the nest of robin’s

eggs outside

my window)


It must be odd for...

I kick around the dust...

There is a horrendous roar...

if the mountains call for...

when you’re at the bottom...

I love you mint chocolate...


stay in the loop
