At the table in the open gym room
You find a hot seat with your name on it.
Holding onto your age, rub your forehead,
in cycles trying to rewind chapters 1-9
Vowing never to cheat
Your told to begin
Paper flapping around fill the air like applause
Pencils all sing to the paper like a well timed chorus

Stepping to the podium is you
A bucket of sweat, bleeding out anxiety about the test
To testify is recalling what you saw
Your memory is blanking even though
you try to repeat the scenes of the chapters
All flipping through your head
Words crowded on the page
 
What stands out are the pictures and even they blur like a collage
The first question grabs you
you answer
doubt skips along the back of you head
Sending whips of opinion down your back
Your addicted to them, give me more
Moving on
