Poet Fiona McHugh shares with us, “Prediction,” along with three other deeply brilliant poems that will be featured in the July issue of The Burgundy Zine.

Shrines of dusty magazines
Buried feelings in our sheets 

They’ll never bloom or get to breathe
If there is not a chance to speak 

By the rhythms of the room
I sense it’ll be over soon 

I’ll pick up my clothes and leave
The parts of me it hurts to see 

So I can mend myself back
Painting gold between the cracks 

Idealism cannot last
When the foundation is built upon broken glass
