Every Friday, 1 artist/painter/poet/writer, letting their work speak for itself.


Josh Kremer




Copernicus turns his neck around, craning at an impossible angle, staring at the harvest moon as its brilliance deepens the blackness of the sky. The stars poke shallow holes in the great black blanket, and the moon reflects a golden yellow that would make greedy kings lick their lips with anticipation at such a harvest of gold. Copernicus shifts his weight. The moon is a giant eye in the nighttime sky, looming over all the earth, watching and watching as a silent illuminating judge. Copernicus is aware of the trees shifting their weight too, their leaves straining to cover their branches of naked bark, their roots digging deep into the earth to keep them stable and from running away. The tea cup set on Copernicus’ head has painted flowers decorating its sides, which conceal the porcelain—Copernicus thinks that maybe the moon can’t see him through the teacup. He ruffles his feathers, shifts his weight again, hesitantly peering through the cloud of leaves between him and the brilliant moon. Other owls were out tonight, in full sight of the moon’s watchful eye recording everything that moves—but Copernicus remain clutching his walnut tree limb, his old wings aching from remaining still so as not to be noticed. His neck rotates slowly around again, hiding under the tea cup, staring out from under its rim at the glowing orb in the sky which his mother always told him was his friend which lit the way at night—but surely a friend can turn a blind eye, at least sometimes.




By way of introduction, Josh Kremer is a graduating senior English lit and Creative Writing double dipper, who dislikes the teeth freezing temperature of ice cream. His writing is represented by ambiguous words such as ‘nonesuch,’ ‘none-sense,’ ‘mania,’ and ‘magic realism,’ all of which may have moot meanings, but are delightful distractions in their least. In his spare time he writes ballads about the dichotomy of good and evil, and laments the indifference of cats.
