The Reluctant Student

everyone was graduating but him;
his loose shoe laces exemplified everything
about him from his lost homework, the
unopened dictionary,  the long list of
days missed, tardiness and inattention
in class while he looked out the window
at clouds passing by, spinning poems in
his mind, writing novels on the margins
of his homework assignments.

I want a "like" button along side your poem posts... similar to the ones on FB. Then I can click them instead of typing all this extraneous gook like I am right now. ;)

Yes, that would be a great addition! You can put a "like" on FB where my poems are also posted. I don't go to FB much, though..not sure about you.
