Penny bought all her course books at the university bookstore
she waited in lines for identification cards, dining hall passes,
Reading alcohol policies and std stats

School was easy, obvious, questions asked over and over.
she knew the answers. She forgot everything. surviving on short-term memory
Penny smoked a cigarette in the sun on the steps
she told a bird, we didn’t have to go to college to learn great things
