common app

they tell me that

some time ago

this wasn’t all so complex.

this wasn’t all such

relegated provings. of oneself

to a slick-faced board of sitters

on a stage of molding crumbling letters and scarlet-scratched papers

maybe this poem is cliche.

maybe this poem is stupid.

maybe this shouldn’t be this hard.

it shouldn’t be so hard.

they told me that

some time ago
