Seattle Poem 1: “Aurora Community College”

The truth is never sweeter than at sunset

when teens spend their time buying legal weed

and Chinese students lean into their screens.

The paths around college empty

for summer to burn itself away

until snows highlight the hiding prey.

What fish must dart beyond

the halls that ready for another season

of toiling and reasoning.
