Listening to urban
jazz music in old time coffee shop,
girls in cardigan jumpsuits scurry across
the courtyard with
an armload of books.
sagging heavily from too much
partying, a football jock crashes on the couch, sleeps
his essay is due at 2pm. he has not started
writing it yet. he corners a nerd in the library,
violence is unnatural, the nerd tells him in a high-pitched
voice, but i will help you just the same.
the rain falls, glistenin.g
from the heavens,
