people all around me are giving up
and i can't even accomplish
my february ninth to-do list
i'm not even sure why i wrote
recipe at the bottom
(and starred it)....
i'm afraid the stacks on my desks at school
and the dust bunnies at home
have joined forces and
are threatening a bloody coup....
today is valentine's day
so i'll have a classroom-full of
giddy, broken-hearted, sugared teenagers
and i kind of dread it, really....
i'm just feeling under
or i was feeling under until i watched this sixty-one-second video....
what do you think?
