Bro-chat Cat


Photo perhaps taken by Elizabeth Brink? Annie Huntington?

The headphoned student lifts his focused gaze
As knowledge gathered quickly flees the room
And all’s illuminated by the blaze

A glow that’s matchéd sole by solar rays
And all attention loudly does consume
The headphoned student lifts his focused gaze

Which broken from the snapping and “sweet K’s”–
His studious self now buried in a tomb–
And all’s illuminated by the blaze

The fire quells and diligence may raise
Itself up from the grave—explosive boom
The headphoned student lifts his focused gaze

Once more he hears familiar catchphrase
Like Independence Day in constant bloom
And all’s illuminated by the blaze

His books pile up as heavy homework weighs
Until he smells the acrid ashen plume
The headphoned student lifts his focused gaze
And all’s illuminated by the blaze

    ha. opportunities wasted…we once more slip into our solitude…perhaps thinking we already know it all….
