walking near northwestern university

walking near northwestern university: taxis trumpet together. pine necks stretch towards busy clouds. the seamless face of a grey-silver cement pool. cleansing scents of a flamboyant forest – the woods are starkly quiet. a student streams by – her rugged face paints a sunbeam gaze. a harshly manicured garden is a western metaphor. strutting scholars chatter, not lamenting that they are idealists in a bleeding world. i stop for a pop feeling the world’s tension with poetic attachment.
