A Short Poem


Come where the creatives flock

with Spartan appetite

and Herculean ambition.

Their conversations come in fragmented rhythm

and stick to you in bits:

two businesswomen brainstorm,

three screenwriters pick at a plot,

four friends catch up.

There sits the solitary scholar

sniffing at his textbook,

the buried novelist

bleeding from his bar stool,

the wide-eyed poet

blazing from her leather love seat-

God pokes them one by one,

trading Pollock-futures

for Angelo-destinies.

Tables littered with moleskin notebooks

and sticker-finished MacBooks-

MacBooks littered with "Meat is Murder,"

Patagonia, a pink whale, a cannabis leaf.

Fruit tart and dirty chai please.

That'll be all.

Fuel the mind, body, soul, friendship...

Come for the cold brew;

stay for what it sparks in you.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.
