I come to teach

I wrote this poem for Teacher’s Day. I wish all the teachers, especially those I call colleagues and friends…Happy Teacher’s Day 🙏

As a teacher,
I choose life.
No hiding in
the streets
of cold frame.
Or swimming
in the murmuring pools
of a shipwrecked world.
And I dream of my students,
connecting hearts to heads.
Two delusions we
all move among.
