    Georgia Doolittle '18
    I’ve always thought it was symbolic

    This is my kind of music.
    This is jump-up-and-down-and-scream kind of music.

    Annie Nields '17
    You call from the parkway to tell me
    you are surprised by the late winter snow, 
    surprised by those beautiful fat flakes driving 
    down the windshield, by that sweet joy 
    of just so much more than you had ever
    hoped for, filling in the median, the banked sides

    hand in hand,
    our Justice skirts swaying
    to the tip tap rhythm of our white dress shoes.
