Middle of Midterms

I tend to ignore my professors

and my responsiblities

and my needs

I don't shower as often as I should

I have no desire to leave my room

I'd starve out if I could

No one has even noticed

I haven't left my room in a week

Why should I?


Why would I?

I am making good grades

I have a three point

What else matters?

Maybe my level of sleep and my desire to eat

Maybe my ability to wash clothes

Maybe my ability to wash me

My hair is in greasy knots

and I am fading as much as my purple hair dye
