TPF / FRAGMENT {7 of 12} -- by BOKE

{TPF_7_01} I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE HARVARD PATH,

{TPF_7_02} but at nineteen I had a B.F.A.

{TPF_7_03} in Theatre-TV-Film ... Did the math:

{TPF_7_04} A graduate degree might best repay ...

 
{TPF_7_05} ... my next precocious years (and THEN sell art).

{TPF_7_06} A graduate degree for Journalists

{TPF_7_07} was painted as a goal -- though not the heart

{TPF_7_08} of my intention, J's are gen'ralists ...

 
{TPF_7_09} ... and storytelling is the job they do.

{TPF_7_10} With less imagination than I'd like.

{TPF_7_11} But clever crow-class guys must often chew

{TPF_7_12} the insect flying by -- what's there to strike.

 
{TPF_7_13} I was accepted and found cheap abode ...

{TPF_7_14} Then grandpa pulled back: Won't pay for that road.
