November 1988


another test Ive failed

lies at the front of the class

on the table

for the overhead

wrapped in silver

with a bow


seeing it

I immediately think

its mine

though why it is

is beyond me

sheer greed must dictate

this possession I feel

for that little box


so I fail

and in failing learn


of my frail humanity

and its control

over my life
