The sleepless night ached inside of you like
A methane pool waiting sharp and shiny
On the forehead. Your brow wrinkled and wrapped
Wringing through thoughts like sweat soaked hand towels.
Absorbent eyebrows wet and sagging like
The frown dripping down and drawing dots on
The multiple choice test sheet. And yellow paint
Cracking against yellowed teeth chewing
The pencil. Teeth browned by the multiple pots
Of pure concentration poured straight through the
Funnel of your coffee cup cram session.
You and your friends finding new knowledge. The
Night before then becoming mere hours
Before the final was set to begin.
