“The Voyage Out” by Jack Meriwether
John David Morris Meriwether (you can call him Jack) is currently studying studio art at Wheaton College and is interested in pursuing creative writing and theater arts. Jack’s poetry has previously been published in The Midwest Literary Review, Teen Ink and Specter Literary Magazine. He would love to have been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, and the dictionary, but whatever. He hopes to someday write a manifesto of scarf-wearing.
