Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

the true tell, the sign of his defeat
was his use of the past tense
referring to the way he used to think

defeated is his old, lazy brain
vanquished is that slouchy intellect
dismissed is the shoulder-shrugging

in his place is a new man
eyes asparkle, leaning forward
slight smirk, gears turning

it was just a required course
‘Critical Thinking’
but now he’s stuck with it for life

teachers stare at a sea of blank faces
but moments like these
are like riding a wave
