i forgot

16 Feb

i forgot to punch out

somewhere the minutes are piling up higher and higher

and i’m trying my best to get back

get back, get back to work, get back to school

i missed the exam, i gotta get back to work real soon

but the buildings all look so similar

within this academic slumber

and so much renovation, i can’t

recognize my own face anymore

just searching, running, dodging in and out of holes

people are around, and they look at me funny

slowing my progress, can’t they see that i don’t belong?

i forgot to punch out, and i can’t find my wallet

i forgot to get out and now i’m trapped here forever

in this landscape of strangers and a lost education

i forgot

i intended to return

but i forgot
