I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

- E. B. White


Gel running purple
Swirling and curling
coloring my paper

Sitting in french class
In the back row seat
writing in lavender ink

Flip the page
continue the flow of color
I have failed my test

S'il vous plait (please)
help me understand
with Sarah's purple pen

looking up
at the teacher in mustard
she speaks to Sarah's purple pen

And Sarah's purple pen listens
and scribbles the word "please"
In place of my original answer
