Jess Bouchard is a senior English major and member of The Promethean staff. She is currently looking at MFA programs and would like to teach poetry at the college level. Her poems include themes of birth and death to make portraits of nature and souls uniting. Nature ultimately becomes the authoritative universal seed in her writing. She is most inspired by Mary Oliver, Lucille Clifton, and Sylvia Plath. "Venomous Words" is a tribute to Plath.
