Acute, obtuse, and right
angles drifted by my wandering eye.
None of them solved themselves.
Nothing made any sense.
My eyes threatened
to drift over to the desk
of the kid beside me
to see his answer
to question 42.
Nope. Can’t do that.
I could not look at someone else’s
test to find the answer
I was supposed
to find for myself.
The formulas had all left my brain.
They had evacuated from the flood
(gary my ex-crush lindsey lying
gary my ex-crush lindsey liars liars)
of information that would do me no good
whatsoever in geometry.
So many stupid questions…
