My Crush

Paid to date,

zero dollars


Total aid awarded

twenty thousand


Estimated cost of attendence

twenty five thousand


And there she stands, my crush on paper

Planned and loaned, I the debtor


The borrower and unwilling spender

And they promised such wonerful splendor


To send to higher places



But sailing there is treacherous

Intrepid and temultuous


Instead I've waited on coarse sand for her

Looking out on the horizon


Feeling the Quake beneth me

And watching as the water withdraws


My crush is deep and blue

An expression of myself


But unlike me unforgiving

Stoic and white capped


Waiting to swallow me up

Sweeping me away


With all of her beauty and promise
