Feverish Vision


The classroom window frames promise.

The spring trees are freshly painted,

The spice of their blossoms lingers

On its trip back to Eden.


Inside, the promise of return

On time and effort invested has

Fallen out of students’ portfolios.

Florescent lights can’t penetrate

To the shadowy, muted instructor

As students look at the world in the window.
