In the class room

the fan makes the loudest noise

second to the crinkle of paper

turning, shuffling.

Shifting bodies.

deep breaths,

inhaling fortitude,

exhaling a last,

desperate hope.




Day 14 of NaPoWriMo. Not following the prompt, which is about examining one’s name. Patrick Lane has already written the only Bird poem I’d want to write!




I don’t endorse any of the WordPress added ads, unless they’re for Fluevog shoes.

    I have loosely followed the given prompts, sometimes it’s harder to write with one!

  2. Good capturing the anxiety that comes on test day. It took me back.
