Kat’s Corner is a poetry segment that is open to student submission. If you would like your piece potentially published, email the culture editor at krwoods@ksu.edu. This following piece is from the Collegian’s culture editor, Katelin Woods.

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
