College memories

My footsteps quicken against the pavement
as I turn walking into jogging,
breath coming out in short gasps against my chest
which rises and falls like a wave,
I can feel a tsunami building.

Running now,
my feet smack-smacking against the pavement,
vision jaggedly darting
like an EEG during epilepsy,
pavement sky tree person building bike rack umbrella
Rain?
So it isn’t just my sweat soaking into my collar,
the sky has turned on a sprinkler.

But before it turns into a Niagara
I am up!
one, two, three, four
steps
and In!

Snaking through the halls
left right left
I find the door and walk in

to take an exam.
