I am starting a science exam (for which I am not really prepared) in exactly 17 minutes. I am writing this blog to distract myself from the fact that I am not prepared.

Today, in emailing with the host of a Philly-based reading series, I realized that I have zero poems about Tak-a-boost, a drink from my youth for which I am still subject to bouts of nostalgia. I need to rectify this situation, ideally before next Friday (when I am reading in aforementioned series). So please, friends, leave me a comment that contains a word you would like to see in this poem. I will do my best to incorporate them.

And maybe I’ll post it here when I’m done.
