It came raucous and harsh
a chill without apologies
or a hush

I was not hardy
and it stripped my tender flesh
leaving the pit
immature and porous

my hate
the suckle
the cynicism the groove

Hey! I am a regular contributor to the culture and multimedia desks for the Collegian. I am a junior in theatre and public relations, with an outside concentration in psychology. I am an enthusiast of a poetry, pizza roll, and pajamas. When I'm not in the newsroom, I'm visiting kittens at pet stores, wishing pet deposits weren't a thing. You can Venmo this broke college student at @Katelin-Woods-2 to fuel my pizza roll addiction.
