A fool's errand
Writing sketches of verse
While in class I sit

Ideas come skipping by
Taking my thoughts
From the droning of the proff
From the lecture and my notes

My notes run from the powerpoint
Into cursive scribbles
Revealing my true thoughts
In the lines and circles of black ink
Between the blue lines of notebook paper

But ideas they remain
Bound by fifty minutes
Bound by notes on assignments
Bound by the whispers of my friend
So they sit between the blue lines
Proof of a fool's errand
