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

Frost descends upon my poems

Like sharp blades cutting the throat of my words

Letters, silenced

Lines grew cold

Verses, trembled

The hand that wrote them, pale and still


Page flips

Gentle whiteness

The poet now sleds down a fresh winter hill

New paths

New sounds

New Life

She writes,


"I am the dancer in the everlasting snow"

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.


This poem is about the struggles of the creating process and how poets use pen tips to create new grooves on the pristine page, a snow hill pregnant with all possibilities.
