Today in the classroom there is
more moon bashing.
Forsake the airy for the real, a smart young teacher says
and the students scratch out all words that end with ache.
Fuck it, one says, I’ll write what I write. Birds clap
at the window — nothing’s more true
than the unforeseen wind.
Tonight in their love-nests the crows will swoon.
