The theme for July's ArtFest was reflection.
The entries are below! :la:
Colorful Sometimes you shine like the red

Of a setting sun in the evening sky.


Another time I have to look precisely

To perceive you at all,

Like a watery sky-blue,

In an exchange of sun and clouds.


Sometimes your outer appearance


Is even changeable, like a chameleon,

Trying to deceive its environment.


Then again, you seem


To radiate something of all colors,

Like a puzzle

Wanting to be assembled

To make sense.


Often, however, you provide all colors at the same time

She doesn’t need to look in the mirror
To know that she is ugly –
The other kids tell her that every day,
Whether they speak it
Or show it by their avoidance of her.
It must be the red hair, colour of flames,
That crowns her brow,
Or the slight point to her ears.
It must be the proper way she speaks
Or the way she can swordfight with the best of the boys –
And beat them –
It’s certainly not the wings she bears.
She doesn’t need to look in the mirror
To know that she doesn’t want to be alive today –
Looking at the other kids brings it all back,
As they run and laugh and leave her to her books and swords –
Strange for a girl to be interested in books and swords;
She never was much of a girly girl except maybe in her looks.
Books are her world,
And she doesn’t need a mirror to read them by
Nor to know what she looks like reading.
She hopes she looks average, normal, curled around a book on

Jerome often wondered why he bothered to go to college. He sat in classes where professors droned, and often didn't care whether he was even present. In addition to lectures, there were also lab requirements, and he fulfilled those with a monotonous drive that would be the envy of any robot. Afterward, he was expected to write essays or do research, tasks which were listed as exemplars for 'doldrums' in any modern dictionary.
When he managed to stay conscious during class, it was a blessing. If Jerome managed cognizant and could actively participate, he considered it nothing short of miraculous. His professors' voices, however, all seemed to blend into a single buzzing hum that filled his ears even when he wasn't attending class.
As the mid-terms approached for his senior year, Jerome really began to questi
