That first touch,
Thoughts without words,
Silence with stark interruptions,
Release of the world’s burdens,
Clumsy learning movements,
Joy I repetition,
A joining of space,
Too short and fleeting,
Until we next combine,
Stay in our thoughts.
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
