University of Life

The subtle thrill

Of dashing across a crosswalk

With thirty seconds to go,

Cars turning right in front of you

Even though it says “walk”.

Speeding down the freeway,

Windows open,

No air-conditioning,

Singing

This is it

This is youth

This is what it is to be alive.

Racing to the top of the mountain,

Screaming

We are the apogee!

This is what they can’t teach.

This is what it is

To be eighteen.
