My Poetry Teacher

there is a rockfall area

above my classroom door

where my poetry teacher,

who perhaps has been drunking,

abstracts everything I write.


each word has its own life and religion.

even if my poetry does contain bite marks

of expression


there is still that long-faced Socrates syndrome

expression on her face,

because everything I write should have

a consequence.
