Once upon a time I wrote a poem for @juulvapor. Now have to do it again because I may have dreamed its #content. For instance, when the sun and moon fuse together into one #stilllife#photograph , is it supposed to make me think of how all the poetry in the world is about to exist in a single spot? Or is it to remind me of this #juulpod#photocollage made by a former student who only speaks in cursive? @Anjani, when I was your teacher, it was the most rewarding experience of my whole professional life to come to class and discuss intellectual topics like tjmaxx and #fitnessgoals with all of you. It seems like a fading #synthwave dream now, but I remember being rendered helpless with love for the whole class and its hard- #vaping students. You were all so smart and addicted that by the end of the semester I felt completely torn up about not being able to teach you one last feeling. But this is a bad look, because being professional is important, as I have learned from getting blackballed completely by the English Department just for encouraging creativity and #synthrock and requiring all #seniors to deactivate from #greeklife and also drop out of school altogether so you can go to #newzealand for the @sza tour. I think there are some shows in #australia as well. Yes, it was not the right choice to tie your final grade to whether you kept putting my not-for-sale and only-available-to-my-top-ten-friends-stickers on your vapepens so that when you wave them around at #raves#partying you make #poemsforbrands synonymous with #collegelife. Even though I will probably never teach a cool poetry class like that again, or sit down in one of those wooden chairs touched by like #joycecaroloates , I do not regret giving too many #sonicyouth assignments or pretending I didn’t see you microdose during the group project. In fact, for me the class was like a dream where we were all respected #williamsburg#performanceartists who also lectured about centaurs and @kimletgordon whenever the #mood would strike. But it was also real, too, like #brooklyn#fashionideas , & being #glam in front of #livemusic crowds, & my own terrifying ambition, which is still too frightening to talk about.
