NEW CLUB ON CAMPUS: We write Rupi Kaur poetry about Penn

Apparently the new club I started where ‘we write Rupi Kaur poetry about Penn’ was deemed by SAC as “too specific” and “is this a serious club.” Given this blatant attempt to silence the arts, I will be using the only platform I have to promote this up and coming club. 

tragik
she was on campus housing
he was revision to fall semester plans regarding on campus housing 

zoom
it’s funny
when it’s 30% participation, the words spill out of you
summaries and rambling examples and agreeing with others
but when there’s no participation element
mic muted, camera off
i guess i thought you really wanted to talk 

por favor señor 
now i understand
when you said it was unprecedented times 
you wanted to make it 
more unprecedented
why are there so many discussion posts, señor

feminism
feminism is
not taking a wage cut 
when you’re making
3.6 million dollars a year
during a pandemic
while you lay off
over a hundred subcontracted
dining workers
because women need to be
strong in this patriarchal society
amirite ladies

break
breakout rooms?
