Falling between the cracks -- Poetry 2011
Eight weeks and still several
student names allude me…
rowdy ones stand out due to
correcting them over and over;
other’s slowly leave their mark for skill
or lack of skills mixed with talkativeness.
Then there are the nebulous ones;
the ones so quiet they disappear
within their work barely resurfacing
after an hour to slip out the door.
Anonymity is their cover; speaking
so quietly, they are leery souls preferring
to be unnoticed between the cracks…
