Poem #14--After the Concert


From across the gym,
I see my student pick up
his friend's little brother
and start swinging him
around and around.

I step towards them
to intervene
but
change directions
and head to the door.

I'm off the clock.

  1. Ha Ha Ha! Isn't it strange how we always snap into that "teacher" mode. I am glad you could snap out of it really quickly as well! ;)

  2. I was thinking the same as Megan, impressed that you could snap off the teacher button. I'm really enjoying this glimpses into your teaching world. Thank you.
