run while you can

Misdirection.

Kylen; 'Get well soon' Photograph Series; Fall 2006

Attendance via name calling and reactionary raising of hands.

A window with a view in a poetry class- feminist poetry, no less.

The cryptic writing of her-story… Something to say, boy?

Raise your hand. Lest, you be called upon off guard–

out the window; your cleverly designed gaze,

which means to catch no eyes, and by other eyes

not be caught. Duty’s eyes. Eyes of ‘the man-‘

which, appropriately, belong to a woman.
