6 Haiku: Life in Iowa City

Hi dear professor

Stop overloading students

Now is not the time

Take our spring break

But wait why only two days

Why not give seven

Stop, Put on your mask

It's really not that hard friend

Things are different now

I'm falling apart

Can I blame it on COVID

I feel so alone

Black Lives Still Matter

or is it no longer cool

Where have you all gone

The cold winter leaves

But the assignments still grow

No sunshine for us

These are reflections and shared conversations between myself and others as we grapple with the reality that is life as a university student in Iowa City.
