Rebecca Andersen is a junior English major. She writes, "Clouds must be read from a child's perspective--simple and beautiful. Too often do I overanalyze my writing, but this poem proves the beauty of simplicity. My second poem, Trapped, is an emotionally dense poem that was inspired by the painting The Bar at the Folies-Bergere. The woman's face, although emotionless, evoked a longing to escape the counter she stood behind. But more than that, the wall that stands between a woman and the world. As a woman, I often times feel trapped, so I write."
