logic and labor


my instructor must think me barely nineteen
to be so surprised at my right answer
to have eyes that grow so wide and
the audacity to confide aloud i didn’t think
anyone else would say that, wow,
that’s what i would say.
head shake. pause. wow.
quiet class doing nothing with the insult
in the air me with teeth bared all animal
wanting to bite wanting to correct
his misspelled writing on the board
eager to floor him again and implore him
to give us some kind of credit.

Say something!
