Our computer engineering teacher
finally went off the deep end.
I forget exactly what we were doing
at the time he exploded.
I think we might have been
making boot disks.
I was working with Nick,
who wasn’t helping at all.
He’d brought his breakfast into the room
and was eating it,
dropping crumbs everywhere.
When he finished, he discreetly
crumpled up his Styrofoam tray
and shoved it into a drawer full of
red SATA cables.
Our teacher walked by just as Nick
was closing the drawer.
He wrenched it open, revealing
trash from a month’s worth of breakfasts.
