The Classroom Experience

Posted: April 30, 2009 in Uncategorized

We sit,
Simultaneously entranced and
Exhausted by the talking
That we must listen to.
Nodding heads can rarely be distinguished
Between the interested and the somnolent;
Yet this is no fault or failure of any,
Neither teacher nor student,
Simply the product of the time.
Eleven-forty, five minutes until lunch,
Our stomachs call out with the power
Of twenty hungry Audrey II’s
All screaming for blood,
Or at least pizza,
In our little chairs of horror.

    “You should eat breakfast.” Said in a the heavy and articulated voice of a female New York Jew. Mother making nutritional quips for the last few times. I will have nightmares about the grill line at CSUCI.

    Audry 2 is an allusion to something hideous no doubt. Keep me innocent.

    Favorite line: “Between the interested and somnambulent.” XM
