For those of you who read this poems regularly more or less (regularly doesn’t mean EVERY DAY) I wanted to let you know that Khanyi got into college. You may or may not know that she is amazing, that she is from South Africa, and that because she is an international student, the whole College Thing is more complicated than it might be otherwise. College college college.
A few days ago, Khanyi got into college.
Where you go how much money
you get who will be there when you arrive what
happens then so unpredictable
always people interesting
unexpected in every single place my father went to college
Cornell class of 1928 his roommate Solly Stein invented
a hot air blower that dries hands in restaurant bathrooms
one of my early college roommates Donna Downes said I
was the first Jew she ever saw. Now Khanyi
will have a college roommate too.
