college life

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

until monday.

his essay is due at 2pm. he has not started

writing it yet. he corners a nerd in the library,

demanding help.

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,

and a

flower opens

into spring.
