I’m yawning again in this coffee shop. Somewhere, I say I want the memory of you. I want the smoke, the rim cut clouds slurping the sun.
My heartbeat fills a moonlit lake with fumes of you too deep to notice you’re still gone.
Stephanie Choi graduated from the University of Arizona in May 2017 with a degree in English and Literacy, Learning, and Leadership. She was an active environmental and social justice organizer, on and off campus. Her passion for public service and belief that young people need to be working in and/or running for government led her search for post-grad government fellowships. She was set on taking one in San Francisco when she had a sudden change of heart and chose to accept the role as a Cleveland Foundation Public Service Fellow at the Cuyahoga County Department of Sustainability. She’s enjoying getting to know Cleveland, and learning how to not be in college anymore.
