Davis is a black hole
A sink
That sucks in
Passionate-Iranian-lesbians,
New-Age-granola-farmers,
Pre-Med.-Chinese-cheerleaders,
Huckleberry-law-students,
And misunderstood art students of all media
Without discrimination.
 
Cattle-prodded and chicken-brained
They stumble
Through unlatched stable doors.
Drawn gently at first,
They hope against gravity to make of themselves
Something…
 
But they only cycle and spiral.
Inevitably becoming heavier and more dense
As their corralled potential chin-tucks
Into a suffocating ball of
Clipped wing feathers and flowers
Safe in a Mason jar.

Suckling their thumbs dry
They wilt
Graduate eventually
And fester at Café Roma
