Spring Semester and a Stack of Pizza

0112151Back in the classroom, we tell stories — some true, some not, and can you guess which? We talk one by one in a circle, then all at once. We hear of new grandchildren and engagements and a fully decorated Christmas tree moved in a truck. A cellphone almost swiped by a monkey. A root canal. When the lesson begins, bodies lean forward to listen. The pizza boxes, already emptied, will be taken to the dumpster later. The books, brand new, carried home to be read.
