A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

The more things you do the more stuff you have to do

I wrote that on the wall and showed my teacher

My teacher told me don’t be so seeeeeeerious

My teacher said now be your own task force

My teacher installed memory foam doorknobs

And bought a lot of Polaroid film

But I didn’t learn why

Because the potential comforts were too great

Like waterbeds on boats

Or watercolor versions of getting younger

Like the boats are not slowing down

And we are not slowing down with them
