Over? MAG

By Melinda D., Williamsburg, VA

     college scare
run through the door
eyes glazed over
endless journey
campus by campus
footsteps beat the path
towering buildings
gothic statues ready to crumble
fill the paper
sweat and blood coexist
write the soul
grovel at unseen knees
accept accept, no no
pray once or twice
kiss the envelope
wait
accept accept, no no
open empty mailbox
check the website
was it the right address
the essay was horrid
accept accept, no no
open empty mailbox
stay awake at night
stare out the window
see the mail truck
accept accept, no no
open the mailbox
see what is inside
heart leap, heart fall
accept accept, no no
