With any luck, next year I’ll be going to another college…

(You know, one of the 25 I plugged into the Common App)

But for now, let me say

Without hope or agenda

Just because its almost April –

(And in April you stop pretending you’re still in NHS)

Are you serious?

I wrote like five essays for you.

Seriously, five.

I’m a senior in high school –

I haven’t written more than a paragraph for school since last May.

I was gonna put my family several thousand dollars in debt for you.

Cause, y’know, you weren’t gonna give me any money whatsoever.

And I was totally okay with that.

To me, you were perfect

For humiliating all my friends going to state schools\

(I don’t have many friends)

And my wasted heart

Will be as wasted as the rest of me

Cause now I’m going to Iowa.
