What Is Left?

hours of phone calls

texts pleading in languages

i don’t even speak

setting up my room

with a yardstick and some hope

ready for today

social media

comments on our lack of space

(century-old school)

2020 wins.

after this, i just give up.

no one came to school.

to walk empty halls

without the student voices

cold. slow. loveless. death.
