POETRY: POST-SECONDARY – LUKE NORMSY

Post-Secondary

mom has 2 Masters’ degrees and a Ph.D. and her
husband does too

they are alumni of the same university as me

and when i was there as a student she said

“Steven and I put $5 bills in our doctoral
theses at the university library so we’ll know
if anyone’s read them!”
so
i went to the library, found their
theses, and took
the fivers
a few weeks later she was on campus again
she was all smiles
“Somebody read my thesis!” she squealed,
“and Steven’s, too! We put another $5 in them!”
so
i went to the library, found their
theses, and took
the fivers
it worked 2 more times before they switched to $1 bills
i took those, too
they were satisfied that their scholarly
efforts were appreciated
i had money for drugs
everyone was happy
