The English Lesson

Naomi Washer '12

Frau Gretchen once said
You have to be careful.
In springtime you might find
yourself under a bush
with a boy
. I
was fourteen and wondered
what sort of poetry she
read to herself
in the bath.

Naomi is slowly saying goodbye to Vermont to pursue her MFA in nonfiction at Columbia College Chicago.
