vici / vidi

my week, in six lines.

1. apply for NSF: check.
2. turn in term paper proposal: check.
3. class presentation: check.
4. turn in syntax paper: check.
5. turn in grammar sketch: check.
6. collapse and die: imminent.

i'm supposed to go into the mission for dinner tonight.
not really sure how that's gonna work.


i need to sleep.
i need to walk in the forest.
and eat vegetables.

i need to read a poem and watch my derrida documentary.
i need to think about things other than school.
if i can remember how to do that.

i need to make out with someone
go for a whole day without speaking
stay in my pajamas

find a sympathetic face
with eyes that glow into me

there was always something about the eyes.
