Penny bought all her course books at the university bookstore

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

 

Weeks passed

She did assignments without caring

 

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
