For the evening classes I took in college during winter,
I would bundle up in layers for making the mile long snow treck
from Holmes Hall to get across campus.

By the time the classes let out, the campus was all but abandoned.
And I felt like I was walking in
the ruins of a once great civilization, still preserved.
The sound of the street lamps humming were amplified like thunder projecting for miles and miles as they sang electric.

I measured my steps inbetween posts to keep time.
I held no station, I was unbound, I was directionless.
My dorm room was a prison and I was in no rush to get back,
despite the freezing cold.
I watched my breath dance
and wished for college to be over
or for things to get better.
