There was an afternoon in college
I spent at a table in the library
with a friend. I remember the day
because I hadn't showered since the last time
I had that usual Tuesday and Thursday class.
it was a tuesday, and I was pretending to study.
do you place yourself in an environment
to embody? i wrote a poem about being
surrounded by the knowledge, and passed it
along to the person sitting next to me.
i hope they read it, i hope they laughed.
i hope they passed it along to the person
next to them.
