Only Good Night Constellations tell the stories of dreamers past, Though her wisdom is engraved to last. From my window, she speaks, “Come young one, with a spirit so bright, Good fortune awaits you in time.” Her place of nurture has just begun, To hush the hymn of a waning sun. Hopeless by a tarnished reverie, I ask, “Can music still exist within silence?” “Only for those who heal the blinded.” Clouds of charcoal hinder the glow That my celestial guardian has yet to bestow. Beams of sapphire escape night’s grasp, Siphoned through her ethereal lighthouse To find me lost in … [Read more...] about Expressions Poems
Autumn Calls in the Dark Copper tones of dying leaves taste the blood of evening's fading light; Merlot sunsets toast to a night of empty landscapes. Not a soul strolls along the ghostly streets, Only the wind speaks kindly on their behalf. Desert Mountain Range Oceans of sand encompass the rocky edges Of a colossal stone fortress touching the clouds-- Trapping those inside its sun-bleached depths In a prison of their own isolation The Hue of You This is the way we chose to play With our fingers crossed and our tongues tied Setting the typeface--curved, italicized-- On the page of our boldfaced lie. I collect the scraps of borrowed time You stole from my … [Read more...] about Poetry Collections
Aries: Leo is the quintessential partner for the ram. Leos are able to keep Aries' eyes on the prize. Their conversations tend to be erratic and passionate because they share so many of the same values. Leo also doesn’t mind dealing with Aries’ fiery arguments as Libra is also grounded in their own flame. Both these signs' stubborn willpower make them great partners for the first sign of the zodiac. Taurus: Cancer, for Taurus, can provide an almost immediate and dynamic sense of trust for this sign. This trust stems from both of the signs wanting to creating a home and life within their partner. Their ability to adapt to each other as they develop within a relationship will make their … [Read more...] about The Signs and Their Most Compatible Partners
Rotten Mangos – Toni Davis I was at a loss of words Today For once. You mentioned how you were allergic to mangos And said how your lips Would swell Like mine Like mine If you ate them. And laughed I was at a loss of words Today For once So many feelings Memories Flew back into my mind Like a swarm of Locusts Too many to swat away I had Too many words Too many things To say. And they clogged the pipe That is my mouth -nothing could escape Do you know How problematic that was? Mangos as microaggressions Black girl black girl I … [Read more...] about Expressions Poems (All 5)
To our exes, We thank you for the endless nights of sitting up and wondering where you were. We thank you for never returning our texts, or leaving us on read. We thank you for making us cry, and making us feel like we were not important. We thank you for making yourself seem more important than we were to you. We thank you for flirting with our friends in front of our faces. We thank you for never being excited for us when something big happened in our lives. We thank you for putting our needs on the back burner to your world. We thank you for making us pay for your meals when you say “you’re on a budget,” we thank you for being so cheap. We thank you for putting us on blast in front of … [Read more...] about A letter to our exes

In light of recent events, the term disaster awareness has become a frequent and urgent topic of discussion among students and our university's faculty. Disaster awareness, for our campus, concerns both natural and man-made disasters that could potentially be a threat to the well being of our community. Students on campus have weighed in on how prepared the city of San Bernardino and this college institution is. Rigo Orozco, 4th-year student, 24 years old: “The more people we have aware the better. Knowledge is the most important thing that we have. We should have gun safety training in the same way that we have sexual harassment awareness training each year.
