Favorite Quote:
"For the privileged, equality feels like oppression."

grape vines—

twine nostalgia—

busy young bodies

invent new enzymes.


sweet wine—

bitterness undermined.


endless summer—

ephemeral rains—

The music of old pains

ceased to compel me!


All hearts and hydrangeas

blossom for an intercity parade,



spares 31 days.

The author's comments:

Shuci Z. is a poet, guilty feminist, and high school sophomore. She indulges in literature, art, environmental & social advocacy, and metamodernist sentiments, but also spares time to feed her newly developed addiction to comedy news. Shuci dreams to make Spaceship Earth a stronger world and write poems about the moon in Cappadocia, Turkey, presumably in a hot air balloon.
