A bit of a poem for Sam (but not really)

It's actually for Nathan and Stacey - for our collaboration - but it's based off something Sam told me that Sharona had said in class, that the Italian word "stanza" means room.

If stanza is just another word for room,
I want to know what goes on behind
the closed doors. Does dust collect
on the words you never write?

Also, I got a letter today saying I'm accepted at West Virginia :)
