Flunking Physics by Jay Passer

with a full head of hair
and athletic ability
I fell in with ecstatic animals
dragged around the track by the scalp.

caught up in various schemes
I lifted stockpots rather than trophies
specialist in Benedict and bisque
quarks and multiverse pending.

now gray and receding
derelict to chemical predilection
damn, I sure as hell will miss
evoking the vengeance of black holes.
