Class Lesson

“He passed away,”

“No, say he died”

Too blunt

The teacher gives us the news

I notice his shirt

Slowly, quietly

“at 2 am, he. . .”

Maroon, with light pink

“he looked green”

A paisley design

“after teaching 36 years”

A very old looking shirt

“math, science, teaching just last week”

Very eccentric looking

Announcing death

And all I think of is his shirt
