Teaching

By S.F. Wright

Friday afternoons

During 7th and 8th period,

When the weekend,

And alcohol,

Are so close that you can

Taste the gin—

Those times are okay.

The weekend

Itself

Is decent,

Too.

But from Monday morning—

In fact,

From late

Sunday afternoon

Up to

The middle of Friday—

Those times aren’t.

S.F. Wright lives and teaches in New Jersey. His work has appeared in Hobart, Linden Avenue Literary Journal, and Elm Leaves Journal, among other places. His short story collection, The English Teacher, is forthcoming from Cerasus Poetry, and his website is sfwrightwriter.com.
