hardwick

staying on campus to study
holed up in a classroom
$2.99 pizza and a michelob forty

commerce
privacy
equal protection

distracted, predictably
by the redolence of your hair
and the allure of the cold, hard table

classroom after classroom
i learned to advocate
i never sought habeas corpus

i studied you.

  5. Good solid Potluck! If studying privacy, I need a lot more than a 40.

    I like "i studied you"

    How does the cold, hard table have allure? I am going to be thinking of that all week.

  6. Out of this world friggin' fantastic. Not a single word wasted and no stone left unturned. Reads with that distracted confidence so admirable in good poetry. Very much enjoyed reading.

    Like your poem, short and neat, and a bit creepy maybe...
