The McGill Tribune is proud to present the Fall 2017 Creative Supplement, highlighting excellent creative work by McGill students, including poetry, photography, illustrations, music, and mixed-media.
We would like to thank the Arts Undergraduate Society Financial Management Committee (AUS FMC) for funding this project, and Chad Ronalds & Hebdo Litho for printing this issue. Moreover, we appreciate all the artists who submitted; it was a pleasure to review your work.
Although McGill doesn’t have a formal visual arts program, students find their own creative outlets. The Creative Supplement serves as a platform to highlight these endeavours. McGill students are notoriously bright and hardworking; we hope this issue proves that they are also immensely talented.
I see your eyes Through turpentine Bars, soft oil Somehow forming hard steel. But in the middle of the living room When light waves H i Tret n as justright, The bars fold ba c k like orange peels So I’ll wait Here. I can hear footsteps in my mind Boom! Thud! Feet soft Across matted hardwood, Somewhere along the way we hi t concrete puddles We’re free! As we race oxen ensemble Ramming its straight capillaries. With its beating heart, I’ll wait here, By the grape vine, In big bay window On top s i t t i n g on little letter desk From here to the couch Across this here mountain floor I’ll feel the safety Of your pillow there. , You were never late To moments already begun. Endurance was never your style, These moments you seem to outrun, And I’m still here.
