The Wonders of Hesdin
The class clown wakes
from his 6th period coma,
the school bell becomes
a novelty clock in his hands,
he trips over his Chemistry notes
as if he were drowning
in the wonders of Hesdin.
What strange transportation
he brings to the corners of mouths.
Up we all go like a fountain!

I am in the deep water of some super fascinating history of mechanical devices and how they have been used to bring laughter and joy to people’s lives.
