Back to School

6:00 a.m.

Alarm blares

back to work

life begins

the classroom kind

teens flutter

to their desks

asking questions

with answers written in unread syllabi

cold coffee awaits

a chug to the next five minutes between my next class and restroom relief

lunch cold

no salad

just tuna

quick room refresh

no scent

is it three o’clock yet?


I must repeat
