I Surmise

It’s tough at any age

It seems

Like fokes just stopped speaking

Intergenerationally

Facts’of changed

Know what I mean – 

     Like how Pluto’s the ninth planet – Except for it’s not actually

Because factually there’s only eight planets in our Solar System (again)

How we learn(ed) and relearn(ed)

Somethings

     So offtrack

To get back 

The dwarfing

Disconnect

In, between

Auspicious, these

‘Degenerates’

Turn out surprisingly 

Hard to pin down

Particularly 

Practical 

When it comes time to

Buckle-down

And follow-through

After all, y’all do –

     When it counts

Ain’t that the truth?

A #freestylepoem @bykaileyann

: Every year was the grade I was in
until it wasn’t anymore;

it was easy for me to know
we’re special
because writing the date on my papers
turned my mind to what 
my daily achievements meant;

K-12 public school
’99 to ’12
‘The Last Class’
we called ourselves
how many of us?
and joked about counting 
down to the End of the World
and then we did Once
stop class –
I was in Prob & Stats –
and we seniors watched seconds go 
ANALOG
wholly tuned-in to the ticking
‘End of the World’
as we knew it Then;

And laughed
when the Bell rang ~
