Contribution, Professional Amatuer

Long words for a short thing
please, do not, pay?
laughter and sun,
value [addition]

subtract education:
classrooms for the reduction of thinking
furthering gerundification
canning, scanning, banning

bookish ways ground down
before coffee shops round town
self-conscious: am I doing the role
as an identity pole

north is south of the top,
but it's on the road
median strictures:
unspoken scriptures

having enough vs. getting to expectations
a fight that everyone is certain
to lose as the clock unspools.
