Cowley Student (Vol. 8: 2019)

So she locked herself away

And let her body decay

For the feelings were everyday

And she couldn’t help but feel betrayed

May you always speak your mind

 and have the knowledge to back it up

Cowley Student (Vol. 8: 2019)

Those we have lost to the crimes brought upon them

Are watching over the next who encounter their villain

Cowley Student (Vol. 8: 2019)

Life in an hourglass

Drowning in time

We, too, sing America.

 

We are the bright sisters.

Cowley Student (Vol. 8: 2019)

Do all fathers like to spend their days

fishing and drinking themselves into a haze

Does beauty sleep alone—
that all her leaves have fallen in the night?
Her trees shivering quietly within their newfound nakedness,
and yet not so immodest is the wind as it caresses
the starkness of her limbs now bare.

Cowley Students (Vol. 8: 2019)

Before a complete stranger approaches your eyes, there is a sidewalk.

 

There is the chance to catch fire, to spark, or change color.
