Borrow to Learn

If you have to borrow to learn —
borrow to earn,
then tomorrow’s your turn
to pay for the knowledge
that should’ve been free.

If you’d rather be blissfully wrong
that hope is all gone,
then don’t lead me on
or make me believe
that you’d envy me.




Dirty realism, grunge lit, creative confessions, spec fic, and assorted literary atrocities.
