I’m doing my final cleaning of my childhood bedroom before they replace the carpets and paint it and such
and I’m going through the top of a dresser that I haven’t looked at in years
right inbetween a pile of three hundred surveys on children’s music I used for a paper and a pile of Rolling Stone covers [I save them]
I find an envelope that says “DO NOT FOLD” from my old college
I’m about to throw it away but I open it first to make sure there isn’t something I might find nostalgic and keep
and I find my college diplomas.
