Hold The Elevator!

Minimalists sit on the floor-level beds and cry

it's hard to care about grades
at a school that tells you
the sun is running out
of batteries.

but I'm here to tell you that a watched pot can sometimes boil.
I proved it once.
I asked myself 'is there another way?
and said 'yes.'

As a kid,
i asked my parents for video games.
i got six chickens and a rooster.
I learned how to clip their wings
how to dig worms
how to swing a chicken with it's head tucked under its wing-
it goes to sleep.

When i try to go to sleep, the clock gets louder
and I try to fit polyrhythems
between the ticks
and the tocks
