you can’t hear the birds on the floor in the hall

i found the perfect place to study at school.
no one else comes here. they all want
the cool, climate-control of the library
with its computers and cushions and
signs banning snacks. i’d rather be here
with a lake and green grass and feet
that can breathe without shoes. i choose
dirt over carpet and rocks over tile and
this alwaysthereblanket over hard, plastic tables.
i prefer to watch the gnats dance and spin and twist
fast like cells beneath the light of a microscope
than to be subjected to a fashion show of magazine style.
i study outside not at all a scientist.
arriving without questions or goals
i still manage to leave with answers.
if i am able to decide around the day’s demands

i will always see the sunset.
i will always pick the sky.

  1. Hey! I don’t know if my name is attatched to this cause I just signed up, but it’s Ron. I just discovered you are posting your stuff on here. What I’ve read is really cool. I’ve been working on my memoirs for about a year now, and have been wanting to find a place like this to share it. I’ve been having a bit of trouble getting started due to poor web reception I’ve been deeling with the last few days. I heard about Neil Gaiman taking notice of you, that’s so cool. Anyway, I don’t think I’ll be doing any more standup, but writing seems to be a better outlet for my weird sense of humor. It’s certainly less stressfull. Keep it up, hopefully I’ll get something posted soon…

    • Hey! Thanks so big! So glad you found me here πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t say he took notice exactly… more like I shoved it in his face and he was kind enough to give a compliment πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear that stand-up didn’t work out, but I do look forward to reading your work. Keep me updated!

  2. sounds like not much studying going on! πŸ™‚ j/k I always avoided studying outside because it was too beautiful to concentrate. πŸ™‚

    • Yeeeah… Sat down to do homework and did zero homework… BUT! It was meant to be ditched because he ended up extending the due date! It was veryvery nice πŸ˜€
