while i am no longer a student-
i cannot deny that there is a small flutter
in my heart when i walk past a fully stocked
back to school aisle at the super market.
there's something about a brand new
binder, a crisp college-ruled notebook
and an ink-filled pen that
get me every time.
and did i mention a bouquet
of freshly- sharpened
because these pencils from carbon crusader
would be the icing on the back to school cake.
