Dominion & Teacher's Plea

Updated: May 4, 2019

(from the SLCC prompt: write a tricube.)


I walk the

dirt road by

my tree line

Bluejay sights

high up from

black locust

Fox crouches

in tall grass

at my feet.


This additional poem is just my way of venting a little steam at the end of the year. Students struggle with all sorts of things that make sense like writing, critical thinking, and reading hard texts, but when, after more than a decade in formal schooling they struggle with stapling a paper normally... Well, then I know it's time for summer break.

Teacher’s Plea

Write one well

written theme

on freedom

but not from

tamping your

paper or

stapling it


at the end.
