#17 Never Went Inside



I am dead, at the end of a poor but full life.

My regret is the university building on University Drive. Those steps flanked by trimmed hedges and topped with glass.

I walked by every day before I swam in meat, grease, potatoes.

The building was a chance, a change, but more than doors separated us.

It ain’t easy. Not when you’re poor and afraid.

I never went inside.
