Diary Entry 17:

Diary entries 14, 15, & 16- ABSENT.

February 4th and 5th: 

I decide against writing a poem due to sickness.

February 6th: 

Long day. Tired, but stayed up for a student’s Venmo purchase. Was informed my friends plan to execute an intervention against my wishes-apparently a plan to stay single is a bad thing. Decided to play Halo against my better judgment and got motion sickness. I request to pick up my headphones from Ryan- turns out he created a timed scavenger hunt for me. I made the mistake of leaving my headphones in his truck and he created a series of riddles as to teach me a lesson. I put off a poem because I’m not in the mood to create. Already wrote a poem for the Van Gogh project. Just want sleep.

February 7th: 5:36pm in my dorm- Based on Van Gogh’s ‘A Pair of Wooden Shoes’. 10:54pm. My dorm.

Sole

I asked of the cobbler,

“Is it possible to craft a soleless shoe?”

 

to which he replied,

“You’re a thing of possibility

as tied to a body that carries.

Who bleeds what is not red

and sleeps on that which is not his head?

You ask me if it is possible to craft a soleless shoe,

and I reply, you’ve yet to walk a mile in mine.

Like wine,

you must adjust to this skin.”
