What Should I Wear?

the perfect lesson
in my first period class
in fifth? disaster

thank goodness for luck
(first hour observation)
and a good review

then onto the day:
grading papers, copies made,
driving the carpool

then circling back
for “emergency group work”
(that’s due tomorrow)

and a crazy booth,
a new and broken scooter,
quick crepes for dinner

the usual groans
for the chores that make our lives
in a wheel of work

weekdays are beast days
with an endless set of hats
that go with nothing
