Random Poem:

brownnose
jcameron

(and i'm years in the past,
 1
thoughts trailing behind the present
 2
like a thread caught
 3
on the jagged edge of memory)
 4
 
 
the dusty mineral scent of chalk
 5
mingled with the damp odour of
 6
pricey white and cheap amber glue,
 7
feel of a faux-wood desktop
 8
under flourescent light
 9
and light valiantly failing
 10
to break properly through the plastic windowpane
 11
 
 
still managing to illuminate
 12
the wonder in my pupils
 13
 
 
(the thread snaps and i shoot forward,
 14
stumbling into your arms;
 15
eager, i vow
 16
to start taking better notes )
