Bunk off

Wednesday, April 17, 2019. Daily Brit Wit.

Bunk off: 

Verb, no object, British informal 

Abscond or play truant from work or school.

“I write best when it rains
but decades have passed since
rainfalls have visited
instead I’m gifted
showers of inattention
and irregular metaphors
splintered branches
and lilac lightning storms–
so I have to make do
jitterbugs running free
a mess inside this brain of mine
irate lovers and skydiving memories
please oh please just allow me
to continue disguising dictations
and crafting countries
I can’t take much more
until the fleeting feeling fades
and I end up
bunking off my responsibilities again.”
