“Desperate and Dumb” – a found poem in an old notebook

Looking through an old notebook, I found this thing I had written. It wasn’t intended to go anywhere. So it might as well go here.

Suddenly desperate to learn, and
finding myself without books.
Mistaking my desire for motivation,
it was a need for inspiration,
and mistaking the solution as
stimulation,
my current state is that
of a shrinking sponge;
dumb and getting drier.
