beyond the green: collective of middlebury voices

a student-run publication that seeks to provide space for voices that are not being heard on our campus. we are grounded by politics that are radical, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-classist, anti-homophobic, anti-ableist, and anti-transphobic (against all forms of oppression) and that reject the structural neo-liberal paradigm that characterizes middlebury college and its official publications

What Is It That I’m Feeling?

My blood is boiling,
I can feel it crossing my body,
threatening to reach my head and burn it,
but I don’t have fever.

This is a new feeling I have.
I am rushing up the stairs, my heart pounding.
Thinking I am being chased
I barge into my room:

The walls were yellow, I thought,
But colors are fading out – I can’t see any colors!
I know this feeling-
I am fainting.

My desk is full of books, papers and papers,
so many things to do, it drives me crazy!
I don’t want any books and papers if they drive me crazy.

I kick my chair out of the way and I throw my belongings to the black walls.
CALM DOWN, IT WILL GO AWAY.
But it DOESN’T!
