Throwaway Existential Poem

I succeeded in failing

I hastily slowed down

I was first to finish last;

I added up the sums the wrong way

I answered all questions incorrectly;

I stood noisily in silence

I remembered to forget;

I recognised myself when

I saw your reflection

in the mirror that wasn’t there.
