Diary Entry 34:

February 23rd:

I tried to write a poem in Tim and Ryan’s dorm, but experienced writer’s block.

February 24th:

I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning finally taking the time to relax. It felt nice.

Based on Harry Willson Watrous’s ‘Sophistication’. Started 1:42 pm. My dorm. Finished 2:06.



A regal spout

as positioned to reflect the visage

of an upturned,

porcelain nose.

In a parlor

where a five-lettered furnace glows,

gardenia-grains shift inside of a milk-white bone.

It’s petticoats worn on a petty evening

and the call of an embroidered egret.
