    Life in a College Town by Reid Baer
    I’ve lived here forever alone
    in this old house previously owned
    probably by a grave tenured
    professor since it was first built

    and I’ve thought at least a handful
    of Times how I’d remodel the
    place, maybe lower the vaulted
    ceiling, or refurbish the loo …

    Oh, so much dreaming about the
    structure I hardly ever leave
    the place and never quite make it
    fit either. I sit comfortably

    a hermit remembering my
    parochial childhood. I grew
    up living close to the Center
    of Learning … but never in it.
