stained school-knowledge – a note to self

Dear Self, These next two weeks, they'll be hard. You'll flip through your beaten binders and notebooks, regarding all the messy, mindless notes you've taken, attempting to memorize the mundane facts.  You'll sniff your unwashed bun and try to cover the stench of chlorine with cheap perfume.  You'll disregard your continuously overflowing trash and you'll…

a collab – school

Change – a poem

Change. A massive haircut. A climb out of a rut. A decision on quality. A thought about you, not me. A deep breath in the shallow water. A rope, pulled tauter and tauter. A serving of stress in a tall glass. A smoothie blend of thoughts on my past. A new song that I feel…
