the tower

On campus, we have a power plant. Its chimney rises into the air well above the surrounding buildings, visible like a Masonic obelisk. It is inaccessible to the public, large and mysterious. I worship it like a blasphemous idol.

Close to, it is massive, smooth, and the turbines hum around it, drowning out the world.
It could be safely called phallicalicious.

So it turns out I was home yesterday when you came over. No one thought to check my room to see if I was there, so sorry I missed you. Do you know when you're coming back up?

Aww... hmm... I don't know when I'll be back up. I guess maybe Megan and Erin are coming to visit me sometime over Presidents' Day weekend, so what are you doing then?
