An old, sun-bleached science project
sits in a glass case at the top of the stairs.
Beside a window,
it catches relentless daylight
that turns the paper-mache herring gulls
a color resembling brown.
Nobody has bothered to take it out,
dust it off, or replace it with something new,
so there it sat,
another piece of my morning commute.

i suppose there's a chance
i'm just a litte too shallow to consider
that maybe i've been a little more eager
each day to wake up and take a shower
brush my teeth and smile for the mirror
Makes me think of old test papers from elementary school, that just sit there in some box in the basement, an unseen reminder of past events.

Nice one.
