Hannah Braley

Game Night
Scrabble racks are a
It’s all fun and games
until he plays
“C U N T.”

And you don’t quite understand,
but you know it can’t be “G O O D.”
So you play
“H O L Y,”

And you think
to yourself
this is where I throw away
my “F E M I N I N I T Y,”
Triple Word Score.

Hannah Braley is a Senior Religious Study Major graduating this spring from Trinity University. She has had a lifelong interest in writing, but her passion was re-sparked while studying abroad in Auckland, New Zealand in the spring semester of 2018. She was fortunate enough to study under the poet laureate of New Zealand, Selina Tusitala Marsh, and is grateful for the chance to share some of the work she developed over there with the High Noon community.
