Welcome to NCC’s Journal of the Arts!
Musings is an online magazine that showcases work from the students at Norwalk Community College. This journal is student-run and we gladly include work from many different categories, not only writing and poetry, but also art, photography, film and music.
Wet By: Mickey McConnell Lungs lose space again. I cannot stand to feel like this, this opalescent self solidifying dark murky blue. Second time, second final attempt, the attempt to touch your glass face. I had felt your teasing existence, reach and touch me, right here, I really don’t want to fight anymore. I really don’t want to be your widow stuck here. I took the capsules, enough to say goodnight, the long dress you said ha d made my figure glow, beautiful and ironic, genderqueerbeautyqueen. DECADENCE. I always said I felt vampiric in this gown, you’re gone now, cannot tell me I am crazy anymore. I lay with the bouquet, we saturate. Twilight carries me into numbness, you are close again, I am close with you, as my hair tangles with the stiches and we dance, beautiful nothings.
