From the Editor

Welcome to Issue No.2 of Flunk Magazine! There's a Japanese proverb, Rainen no koto ieba, oni ga warau, which roughly translates to "talk of next year and the devils laugh". With so many people's plans upended this year, we have been humbled that students have still found the time to submit their work. Since releasing the first issue, we've been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and support from both the staff and students of Southern Cross. We really can't thank you enough. With the launch of this issue, we are now one step closer to our goal of getting to print by the start of next year! Once again, a huge thank you to Matt Weismantel for creating all of the artwork for this issue. Also, a special thanks to Libby Lawler for designing our first ever Fusion Festival Cookbook. This was a special collaboration we look forward to continuing in the future. We are so excited, and proud, to share this collection of student work with you, so start scrolling and check it out!

The Phantom Songs

A Short Story By Alana Paterson

"In the dream that I woke from, Miranda warmed my tiny hand in hers as she led me across the beach towards the festival."

billabong

 

willow’s trail

summer rain adorns

tear-stranded chains

in mud-brown waters

at creek’s elbow

where once we played

on bleached summer days

giggling and hiding

within playful strands.

 

moss-slimed roots jut

from clay-bedded banks

their velvety strength

forged there,

fixed, resolute.

 

How forgiving the branches

as we clung and swayed

how easily they bent low,

persuaded,

to join our play

as we danced like water elves

singing summer’s last song.

Birth, Death, & The Glorious Mess In Between

A poetry suite by Linda Brooks
