Get to Starbucks
an hour early.
The line might get
a little curly.

Collegetown is back
in session.
Raise your hand
if you have a question.

"Where did all these cars
come from?
Why must summer submit
to autumn?"

Mothers lament
their empty nests,
but I have a birdie
for my town's guests.

Nine months from now
summer will return the norm . . .
until then we live
in a city-wide dorm.
