This City in 100 Words or Less

It isn’t easy to be old
here in this city that worships
wealthy parents and student loans,
especially if you’re too freeform
to ever be tenured or thought of as a scientist.
To be truly appreciated here,
it helps to be
a statue or a plaque
commemorating something else
that is even older.
