JP Legarte is a Pilipino-American junior at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working toward a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and an English minor. He desires to provide spaces through his poetry where others can process their own emotions, ponderings, and anything else within life itself. If you were to ask him what fizzy-drink term he would attach to a good can of A&W root beer, he would tell you that it’s his favorite soda (as opposed to other terms like pop or Coke). You can find him on Instagram at @jpl091 and @unspokenentropy.

From the ground looking up between several tall dark buildings, a patch of yellow smoky sky visible, with a few birds flying overhead.
