Other Tuesdays

New York City

Other Tuesdays were not as bleak
The trees held more leaves
Nature’s warmth still held us close
As the fall winds called for change

Other Tuesdays were better off spent
There were cobblestone streets to be explored
We were always halfway between home and Paris
Cleaving to ideals ill-afforded our bank balances

Other Tuesdays held less madness
Treated us with greater kind
They lacked applications and deadlines
Weren’t a pedagogical call to arms

Other Tuesdays weren’t this hard
This chop suey of hopes and confusion
Heaped on a platter
Laid out for all to see
