YOU CAN’T SAY THAT ON TELEVISION
Her fingernail clippings do not resemble crescent
moons. She spends the evening alone in her room,
soaking her one-page 101 essay in CK One
in case her teacher doesn’t get it from the thesis alone:
Everyone’s the same, OK? (Weird & alone.)
Failing is average, so all those F’s should be C’s.
Maybe it is just a numbers game. Don’t blame
the full moon for her weird behavior, or
her sleepy scholarship. If she can’t pass college,
she’s totally “f[…]ed”--the academic bleep.
