Because My Students Asked Me
what i would want them to do
at my funeral, i told them:
write & perform a collective poem
in which each of you says a line
about what i was like as a teacher,
about how i made you reach for stars
until you became them,
about how much you loved
you hated me.
You mean even after you die
you're going to make us do work?
