Diary Entry 21:

February 10th/Entry 20:

Poem absent.

February 11th/Entry 21:

Absolutely exhausted. Stayed up for another student’s Venmo purchase.

I look at the clock at 9:16pm. I forget to type the time before. I finish at 9:22.

Based on Frederick Judd Waugh’s ‘The Setting Sun’.

Study Break

Who can write a poem when they’re about to crash
or as inlet eyes lull the act of fishing for words to sleep?
The motions we keep
with the tide,
next to the stickered-up steno with its wide
mouth agape
and its blue lines bobbing
in the yellowed waters for penciled minnows.

-A. Struthers
