eight thousand equations

Exhausted
My pencil falls from my twitching hand
My glasses hurt my nose
And there is this nasty
tingle between my shoulder blades

I look at the dregs
in the bottom of the tepid cup
I look around the room
for an excuse to end this analysis
I scratch an itch
crack my knuckles
Grumble something
even I don’t understand

Pick up the pencil

Only eight thousand more equations
to go
