Flashback Friday Poetry: The Purpose of Listening

what is the purpose
what is the reason
why should i listen
it’s the spring season
sit for an hour
start to doze off
wishing the teacher
wouldn’t speak so soft
after a year
i realize the intention
i failed the test
i should have paid attention

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
