Testing Blues

“Why am I taking this test?”


the state wants to make sure

you have the writing skills

they require.

“What if they read

my searing memoir on loneliness,

or my ode to reunited friends


“Oh! I know.

How about the state

reads my essay

on how to create

green spaces in our community?”


this is just about the data.
