Poem

by Andy Nguy

Counsel inscribed on the wood of a desk:

       What will you do
       with your wild
       and fragile life?

Encouragement,
Or criticism?

Does the public venue
render its beauty to nil?

What of it now?
What of it now that it is a poem?

 
 
Andy Nguy studies English, Philosophy and Biology. He often worries about the metaphysical relationship between milk and cereal.
