from “Renditions of Change,” a work in progress

It took me more

than a decade:

to realize

my students were smarter

than we let them be;

to stop being

such a martinet

prancing upon a stage;

to listen to their minds

as they translated

their world out of ours;

to finally be silent

and step out of their way.
