For the past two weeks I have gorged
down textbook after textbook,
fed myself sheets of notes
until I could no longer be fed.
My desk is splattered with spoonfuls of my vomit,
chunks of semi-digested knowledge
slimy and sizzling hot
with my stomach acid.
I can’t help
but think that us students, we’re some sort of
creature, something temporarily deformed
and blazingly insane. Because
after all this superfluous brain damage
it’s amazing that
we are still able to evolve
into something else, each and every
one of us, evolving into something else entirely.
