Students to nudge to work or be silent,
while others teach.
While I remain voiceless…
IEPs to write. The implications of the difference to face.
Between where I am,
and where the report indicates I ought to be…
Already a late one, capped off with an appointment,
from which I return home by 8:00. For dinner.
followed by a 9:30 bed time…
…so I can begin
a shudder every time
the clock ticks
