"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Strange Thing This World

Harvard is the new Ghetto
where old lined faces
were once young and fresh
and the swallowing of little
fishes really meant something
I just forget – how ? and why ?
those are the equational questions
we bounce around in our ever
bending worlds
with dark blue socks
and pinned on grins
that get lost
among the gladiolas
cartels of gratitude.
