Back to School (March 20, 2007)

counting the due dates
six weeks after spring break
no more school ever

joy and nourishment
just under a dollar—
double cheeseburger

late class tomorrow
sleep without consequence
alarm clock set to four

surprisingly light
night class doesn’t feel like night
until it’s over

lazy sunset
people are cheerful
in the bright dusk

squirrels find treasures
beneath receding ice
box of milk duds

rusty bike chain
academic motivation
—both decompose
