What I Did Last Summer Sestina By Karna Upadhyay I used to wonder why things were and weren’t legal. At first I thought the only things bad were those lethal. Then came along the whole notion good and evil. And police just wanted everything to be peaceful. But that whole phase passed when I met those mean people. Now I just stand and stare through my peephole. I used to stand and stare through my peephole. When people passed I’d jump out, stab them and scream, “It’s legal!” “You were trespassing, I know my rights you demon people.” “You’re lucky it wasn’t cyanide, then it might be lethal.” What I wouldn’t give for an evening that’s peaceful. Why did I get the burden of smiting all the evil? The judge keeps banging that gavel and saying I’m evil. That I shouldn’t stab those demons lying dormant beyond my peephole. Damn I wish she would just calm down and act peaceful. I should shank this crazy broad, then we’ll see who’s “Legal”.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
