On Studying for a Final

The system demands my acquiescence
while it scores the past months of my existence
with numbers and letters that are exceptionally useless
not revealing the early mornings, indecisions, empty kitchen cabinets
or each excruciating minute
striving to be pleasant
while he flips through compilations
looking for another victim
to smother with meaning
that was never intended.
