Fall Semester Finals Week

It is the middle of exam week
Abundant patience
Has worn down to
Sardonic exhaustion
I’ve not fully burned out
But the house has caught fire
And the neighbors can see smoke
Escaping from under the front door

The useful parts of me are depleted
Leaving only the gluttonous chocolate eater
With a reduced social filter
Anticipating a too-short season for renewal.
