300 Othello Avenue

300 Othello Avenue

Perhaps every university campus has a similar thing.
An edifice, a place where everything nightly happens.

Even a compass would be confused, chilly, quivering.

All directions pointing to that table that defies NEWS.

-- where we sat or lay upon it in the kitchen laughing.
Kitchen. Who cooked there? Not a living soul. But ate.

Cried. Hugged. "Studied" quote unquote, snow falling
on a driveway that only dreamed of holding a vehicle.

Simple times and ideals -- sleepy alarm clocks ringing.
Wine and beer in a cellar, and decades to learn things.

Just tonight I walked past, and scratched my bald spot
thinking -- I've never experienced such euphoria since.
