Rambles of a College Student


Three weeks in, and so tired.

It’s cold,

my coffee’s gone,

and I didn’t sleep nearly enough.

(Lunch is in an hour, so that’s a plus.)

The wheel in the sky

turns over and over.

Day class, night class, eight am’s.

Reading, writing, do again.

Oh the Humanities.

Three weeks in, and so tired.

“Spring cannot be far behind”,

but it’s only January still,

so yes it can be.

I have half a mind

to quit

but I won’t,

so I’ll cry and suck it up

and do my homework.

Oh the Humanities.
