Unannounced Departure: my latest .@ImageCurve #haibun

messy desk

There are fresh mouse turds near my workstation, beside piles of excess papers next to Jaimie’s former workstation. We found out that she took a position at Briarcliff schools last Friday.

Jaimie had urged me to join Astor after she left Columbus. Now, she’s gone, and I remain.

Just another of the many of whom she didn’t say goodbye.

that empty space
where her computer was …
our work continues
