Fall 2017


Tiffany A. Ko


There is a reason why she has no rhythm until the very end.

Her story is full of poetics.

They mesh and collide,

Push and pull over control of the beat,

And all together they create a cacophonous gathering

Of stories and songs.

It isn’t until she ends

That they ebb out

Into a softer sound

A softer beat

A dying rhythm.
