Mistake in Identity

by James Morehead

cringing
it hits me
              my briefcase
(left it on the goddamn platform)
interview for MIT in fifteen
and no briefcase

fine

just hop off
                  go north
it'll still be there
of course

 "i'm sorry sir this station is
closed
a suspicious briefcase
must be detonated
                              it presents a potential hazard"

"but
       you can't
                      i'll never get into MIT
wait 

it's mine!"

it's funny
now
as I remember that day
                                    and count the years
i left my briefcase
at home

Next in Pony Ride in the Sky
