CXXXVIII.03. like a second-grade teacher

Postby allenitz » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:04 am

second grade
school teacher, has coffee
and breakfast here every morning
with her two little girls

walks with rapid little steps
like a second-grade teacher keeping up
with her second-grade charges, soft sensible
shoes, like a second-grade teacher, sensible
dark-rimmed glasses, no dash or flash
allowed for second-grade teachers…

a nice-looking woman
in her early thirties, plain and sensible,
almost as quiet as a librarian…

like Marion the Librarian,
beautiful, I bet,
when she takes off her
black-rimmed glasses
at the end of day

heart-stopping, I bet,
as 76 trombones
gleaming in the sun
in a spring day parade

that’s just a guess – I’ll never know
for sure…

another reason to be thankful
for the gift
of imagination

Good one. Another observation of a person then running with the metaphorical scissors to make an imagined result.

Good one, Allen.

With all the sexual harassment and assault charges these days, it's wise to use our imagination rather than our hands.

Enjoyed this character poem, Allen -- a great tool for characters in a story, I think - succinct, fascinating, observational poem of a character in an every-day type environment

Yes, the delight of the imagination!
