He’s convinced himself that
if he looks east long enough
he’ll see the sun go down.

He knows a circle’s a circle,
knows the planet’s a globe,
knows it spins and orbits

but he failed his high school
physics classes, skipped out
to get high behind the gym,

hang out in the library, read
poetry, and chat with Janey.
So he never learned squat.

He’s up again early, though,
staring into the western sky,
waiting patiently for sunrise.
