Paul Olexa is a sophomore at Randolph-Macon College. His poetry doesn’t want to fit the bill, but can’t help finding it wherever it goes.

Advice From One Teller to a Customer
By Paul Olexa

“What most want out
a piece that touts a timed
scheme is something magical:
points that huff
in a burst
sabbatical need
and curse.

if there ain’t a dream
at bullion seam, mold
matters diddly-squat
for weighin’ gold.” “Now,

Good day, ma’am: these coffers’re
tapped out.”
