Sample Poems from The Endicott Review 2017

By the Editors

Self Image
Alexandra Munteanu

The mirror in my soul

leaves nothing to the imagination and you’re pretending not to see it, waiting for me to give up the ruse but there’s nothing magical

about a girl who doesn’t know what she’s made of

Tea & Honey

Victoria Pulvidente

hair tied up in a knot, cup of tea in one hand,

toast drenched with honey in the other

she sits cross-legged on the mattress her eyes widen

her pale lips open slightly goosebumps rise on her bare legs and when the door swings open she’s been waiting for his return

Silent Screams Mean Everything

Megan Theodore

i have died

over and over again choking on my own silence words clog my throat

they build up, fill my lungs and nose

until everything i’ve never said kills me, over and over again3


Sarah Schuyler

I’m waiting.

Three years ago, I moved.

I left. I packed up my belongings And squeezed them into two cars

Along with the hope that would carry my heart Into a new life brimming with endless possibilities.

I relished each new season and each and every moment,

Filled with joys as well as sorrows. I only have one more year left, And even though I’ve spent so much time doing

So many different things that it feels like time will always Be one step ahead of me in an endless race,

I’m still waiting.

I don’t always know what for, but I’m already sensing the change, The move, the calm after the radiant storm that will encompass the Diplomas and preschool graduations and champagne and late nights.

I’m terrified of it, this change, this unknowing, this endless chasm of

Thirty million what-if’s and the answers that I can never form into coherent speech. It’s almost easier sometimes to be complacent, to be content;

To find solace in a sheltered little bubble by the ocean where

I now know almost everything that I didn’t before. But every time an airplane soars above the cloudy sky, Or when I see the world through my child’s eyes

I remember why we have to leave, and it’s exhilarating. I’m done waiting.

The only thing that’s waiting is the world, And it’s waiting for us.

Connor O’Keefe

We’ve spent so long waiting to see you pay

Me and this monkey on my shoulder For all that you did

Waiting for some measure of justice Days to weeks

Weeks to months Months to years

Waiting to see you as low as we were Me and this devil on my shoulder Waiting until we can’t wait anymore Then waiting more

That’s all a grudge is

Waiting for the other guy to shit the bed For him to screw it up

And waiting to watch it all fall apart with a smile

Waiting and waiting

Until we realize it’s not happening And all that time spent on spite Was wasted

And I have to move on

Me and this nobody on my shoulder But until that day

We wait

Revelations of Truth
Marie Mello

Until you have been stripped Of words & possessions…

You really don’t know your True Self Or how Strong you really are…
Or even where your Heart lies… Waiting for a sign, for the pain to end…
Is a blessing…

Because you build strength

And eventually that pain, that truth, and the love of self Leads you to the right path…

Hold on to the belief that you are enough

That path & the next chapter are going to be the best yet…

Sunday Night Football

Alysha Howes

Texts were flowing in like rapid fire


8:30 couldn’t come soon enough

Homework had to get done

And obviously had to get ready for all the fun

Rissy had her red Edelman jersey on Nikki was preparing chips and dip

I was nervous because the love of my life, Gronk, wasn’t playing

Jimmy G’s first game,

Must be hard being compared to TB12

Rissy ran to One Stop because she’s now 21

Needed Bud Light for good luck to our favorite squad

Chips, beer and football

Screaming, heart attacks and questions from our roommates that are clueless
