Cruel Intentions: Part 2 (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette, LA & Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


                                                                          II

“I did Tina last night!” the jock cheered as the boys were huddle the around most with their shirts off.

“How was she?” a boy from the huddle yelled.

“She blew my mind!” the jock mockingly batted his eyelashes with pleasure.

The boys cheered in, but didn’t know the new boy was standing on the other side of the gym lockers listening in disbelief. He thought he was special to Tina. He thought they had a connection, but it seemed she had a connection with everyone.

“How far did you get with her?”

“All the way!” the jock bragged. High fives followed.

Feeling defeated, alone again, the new boy skipped gym and went to the library to hide. He searched through the books for some kind of escape, for anything to remind him of his innocence…then came Tina. He wasn’t sure why she was in the library and it didn’t seem like she had a purpose but to be here at this moment.

“Whatcha looking for?” Tina slithered seductively.

“The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” the boy was losing interest in books and following Tina’s looks.

“Sexy,” Tina grabbed the book out of the boy’s hands and let it fall to the floor. Tina didn’t like books. “Come with me after school.”

“But I have to catch the bus.”

“I’m a faster, more reliable ride,” Tina whispered in his ear.

Regardless of what the boys said, the new boy felt special.

The new boy stood waiting for the bus, wondering if Tina would really show up. Just as he was about to place both his feet on the first step of the bus, a car came speeding near the bus. It screeched to a stop facing the bus and the new boy.

“You coming?” Tina pushed up against the steering wheel, which also pushed up her breasts.

The new boy took his foot from the safety of the bus, “Sure!”

Legacy of the Future (Ted Richard-Church Point, LA)

One day, a very large owl appeared in my dream. Its rainbow colored feathers showed Only the wealth of wisdom that had been Amassed throughout its lifetime.
And then it spoke to me “Legacy of the Future” And then flew away.
It’s strange to me how a dream can be So distant yet so relative, So blurry, yet so vivid; So imaginative, yet so real.

I spent many of the next years Wandering and wondering. Wandering through my childhood, Wondering where life would take me. Wandering through my adolescence, Wondering which path to choose. And wandering in my young adulthood Wondering if the choices I made would ever mean something.
And then I remembered the dream. “Legacy of the Future” And I knew exactly what the owl meant.
From that day forward, Each day I dwell on each moment As a way to become the person I envision myself to be: Honest, Strong and Proud. I am honest about my successes and honest about my failures. My failures become opportunities, and leads to more focused direction. I am s…

When I Look into the Rainbow I See (Bisquita Stevens-Broussard, LA)

When I look into the rainbow I see
Blues like the sky and greens like grass to grow.

When I look into the rainbow I see
Yellows like the sun that gives me the Vitamins that my skin needs. When I look in the rainbow I see
Purples and oranges that make flowers look so Vibrant into my eyes. When I look into the rainbow I see
Red that stands for hate the same hate that is why a lot of us can't marry the person that we love with all our of heart. Isn't red supposed to mean love? Red hate, just because I love someone in my own sex.
I also see hate in my own Gay community. Who cares If I can't wear the Latest fashion because of money that I don't have? It should be what is in my heart. Stop the hate and stand together as one.

Superman (Jennifer Chehardy-Lafayette, LA)

I thought you were Superman. Taking off Brave. No gear. No fear. Kryptonite? Pffft!  Muah! So you thought. But discovered When you landed, there lie your krypto. The green glowing rock of  The familiar, routine, ordinary. What next? Another flight. But how? After you've worn the cape. Es-cape. Leave the cape. Only to discover you are Clark Kent. And he is Superman. Maybe not in flight but in person. Be that person With or without the cape. The story still ends the same. Get the girl. Know your weakness. Always a hero Just sometimes in a different place. When you were flying I said Who is that? A bird? A plane? When you landed I saw you really were Superman.
