by Camille Thigpen

and you in the corner, gaze
gleaming as with lightning
hair you lean
precariously on that fine-line

Camille Thigpen has resided in Pennsylvania, Sweden, and is currently based in France, although she is beginning her freshman year at Bard College (New York). She has been published in Taft College Literary Magazine, recognized in a couple local short story competitions (the Sollentuna Library's (Sweden) in 2010, and the American Library of Paris's in 2011); her true home, writing, is one she never intends to leave.
