Inhale this college Town

Wake up
turn over
then look out the window.
~
It all seems so normal now,
so normal to wake up and turn and look.
~
So normal to get up and see.
So normal to stumble to the kitchen for coffee or tea.
Inhale.
Breathe in this college town.
~
The silent sounds still everything.
No one is up in this part of the world.
No one is up in this college town.
~
But it’s normal now.
So normal to stumble, tea, hear nothing.
~
Wake, turn, window,
get up, see, tea, hear nothing.
Just breathe. And wait.
~
Sit. Inhale.
Just sit and wait while hearing nothing
wait for those moments
when small breezes bring a whiff of home through this college town. .
~
So normal now.
Sit, wait, inhale, hear nothing.
~
And only in these moments
Does it hit your nose
those small breezes that bring a whiff of home through this college town.
~
The humidity of desert storms
Mother’s vanilla that sweep off her hair
and the air that’s warm and not sweet.
~
Sit and inhale.
Sit and inhale.
For those moments of wonderful smells.
~
Sit, smell, wait.
Wait for those moments of home
that might eventually waft through this college town
