Lucy Wang, Grade 10
Luminescence of the water,
like glitter after an art project,
like the stars of myr scattered
across the obscurity we call 'night'.
joyful ecstatic delighted
gleeful merry elated.
Gives the feeling of vacation, prom, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
perhaps it would make more sense if we were 70% happy (70% water, remember?)
Water. Grey like the irises
of that boy in fifth grade,
mad unhinged beastly.
Feel the turmoil bubbling underneath the surface, the current.
(Humanity is 70% water, remember?)
