Nothing but our despair is deep enough to cover the pile of essays



From College Misery, April 20, 2011


really bad wednesday haiku, but only one


snow! april is the
cruelest month, this snow not deep
enough to cover

the pile of essays
begging for attention, like
small birds with open

mouths, too hardy to
freeze, too weak to survive in
any meaningful

way. dark letters, marks
against a sea of white, stones
in too-shallow snow.
