Education

There is rhythm
Even here, in the click-clack of the keyboard
As I compose another test
In a never-ending line of assessments.
What is this definition
Label the part of speech.
Categorize and explain,
Until at least one small piece of your world
Is neatly quantified and set aside.

Move on.
Learn again
Some of the same things.
Mostly the same things.
We are a forgetful people
Circling round and round to remind ourselves
Of what we knew, once.

The heart of my discontent:
Day to day life
Goes by unnoticed.

It needs a filter,
A change in perspective.
Some mask to trick me into seeing
The beauty.
