I let the cat in—

then let her out once again,

thus my life proceeds


My students read books,

alone with their thoughts each class,

we learn what we do


I must write a poem

I must write every day

Today, this is it

I’ll write a haiku:

they are simple enough, though

simplicity’s not


I have taught for years and years

I’m still not sure what happens
