Doughnut Crumbs Have No Concept of Stress: A Poem

Hi there! Today in my creative writing workshop we were focusing on titles, so I decided to go a little more out there this time… Searching for images of doughnuts was both the best and worst part of writing this piece, just so you know.

I hope you enjoy this poem more than I’m currently enjoying my essay stress!

The little doughnut crumb on my desk doesn’t care what time it is.

He does not know what deadlines are, how

3am looks different to mid-afternoon, he just sits,

And one day, will be brushed away into the trash, and he could not care less.

Sometimes I feel I am being brushed

Into the trash; I care a lot.

Doughnuts are a good friend; they do not judge me

For eating doughnuts at 3am.
