Homesick

its a 3 hour 45 minute drive

to the base of the mountain

and three days till blast off

but it’s too hard to wait

my brain is singed at the edges

my highlighted and circled gray matter

is still trying to retain and coordinate

too much pedagogy and rhetorics

from my classes while my spinal fluid

drips out of my fingertips

and onto the steering wheel

its just 3 hours and 45 minutes away

from the base of the mountain

everywhere I’ll go this week

until I get fed up and leave
