Robin Mendoza


I wake up to a clap of new summer heat

and an indigo sky with orange-gold belts.

This weekend we’re staying at a schoolhouse

powered by a dam. The city is rowdy

because of some holiday, so we walk the long way back,

through a Jewish cemetery and along the canal,

avoiding main roads, which takes us essentially

the whole afternoon.

Robin Mendoza is a sophomore studying New Media at SUNY Purchase, back in his county of origin after nearly seven years in the capital region. He previously studied creative writing and studio art at Oswego. He’s edited a couple literary mags himself, and would most definitely be down to picnic with Mr. Toad.
