Midnight Sessions

Long nights

Converse over hard work

In small kitchen

Concrete lined ceiling

Linoleum floors of white

Abandoned

Dark

Cozy

No fake food or cook utensils

Small width tables

Made of plastic and metal

Long enough for all

When pushed together

Invite

Collaborate

Converse

 

Easily filled

Friends pile in

Spread out with labor

Sit next to helpers

Online and written work

Papers

Laptops

Snacks

Play Disney music

Blare as we sing

“Be Prepared”

Advice unheeded

Distract from the important

Grades

Work

Insomnia

Yet we rage quite

Pour our frustrations into

Detailed heartfelt conversations

We fight back rage and sorrow

Another road block hit

Math

Poetry

Sex Ed

Desperate to finish

We wait till its midnight

Till sleep filled eyes

Says enough for one day
