    Phenomenon: Dead Once Again

    As outlandish as it might seem, Sylvan Norwood was granted his solitude inside the courtyard, where rain still drizzled through the dawn over the victim of the devilish crime. Darwin performed a series of unspoken instructions. Sylvan’s eyebrows gestured when Darwin should remove specific volumes. Tightened corners of his mouth ordered Darwin to set them down in a dry place. Amongst the moisture, Darwin deciphered a plan to turn his hat into a clever tent.

    A Moment of Silence: Remember the Future

    Remembering the future. I know it sounds weird, but it was something I found myself thinking about on Friday, April 16th, when Providence College bore witness to the silent terror many students go through every day throughout the country and the world. I wore a black shirt with the word “SHEPARD” printed across the front and the words “Ask me why I’m not talking” on the back. I was asked by a few people and reached into my back pocket to give them a tiny sheet of paper. It was all I was allowed to “say” that day. It was all I was allowed to do to stop homophobia, end prejudice, and restore dignity to those who lose it on a daily basis.

    All You Need to Know About Time

    Crammington Square used to be an area in the city where all of the rich, well-to-do people would spend their time. One could find bankers in black or navy suits eating their lunch on benches, most likely sandwiches prepared by their wives or bought from the expensive deli down the street. Women wearing shiny heels and colorful scarves could also be found pushing baby carriages of pink or blue lace. Children, their faces dirty with mud, would chase each other around the ornately sculpted fountain. Every now and then, one of them would retrieve a penny from their parents and toss it into the shimmering water with a wish.

    Churchstate

    They deplore what I adore,Whose spires transpire on a higher planeAnd pious inside her conspireToward apocalypse, but no one really wants thisAnd I know I’m still a young prickWavin’ green flags and glow sticks,My skin still tight to my ligaments,My sin skills heightened and I might jones for Ritalin,I’m slightly musing, I might be losing,I’m cruising for a bruising and I rightly run on shoestringsBut don’t think, ‘cause you don’t see‘Round the whole scene or you can’t sleepSans melatonin roamin’ in your bloodstreamOr you don’t dream, homie, that you know me,‘Cause you can’t readBetween the lines of code that showed meHow to make G’s while I take Z’sAnd say cheese while I’m eight deep,And lately, what can shake me but a bad dream?But that’s exactly what you’ll seeIf you go back to the first scene and simply add some M-16’sAnd with a little inspiration they’re accumulating HadjiIn dead heaps, and red sheets,And dickin’ ‘round in Humvees,While half the world away, heIs sittin’ comfy-cozy, and he is one of many,With their creep leers and cheap beers,Snide jeers and wide sneers, they push fear,The over-simplified band of over-amplified menWho get their hands on microphonesAnd they can activate the dronesAnd they can make ‘em leave their homesSo they can glorify their bones‘Cause they were sheep, sure, and knew the Word,Got hurt and were unheard,Killed shepherds for the Shepherd,And what’s more, they deplore what I adore,They who think their spires transpireOn a higher plane, and sireKids to kill on distant shoresOr to be objects of desire for the pious ones inside herAnd you might say I’m a liar but not that I didn’t try, sir,So before you say goodbye, sir, and go home, and get domeFrom your trophy wife, and enjoy your cozy life,This is all I’m gonna tell you, when you’re outside at sunriseWith your red eyes, your banner and your pride,Can’t wait to raise those colors high,I know you choose to, and it moves you, and the news too,But ask yourself: Do you deserve to?
