Empty

DP English Language and Literature HL students in Grade 11 have been studying the poetry of Sylvia Plath. Students mimicked her style by writing a pastiche.

One’s worst nightmare
Can become a reality.
It happened again, to me. 

Hachiko kept waiting For
his professor, Waiting,
waiting,… 

Each day less hopeful. Standing
through spring Through winter. Months
then years later 

The reverse of the Big Bang,
Colors and signs of life
Became an empty void. 

Day 27, no messages.
What did I do wrong-
Or are you just bored? 

by Susan, Grade 11
