teaching poetry at an alternative school in Delray Beach, Florida

sunny headaches after teaching teenagers about poetics.
some get it, some don't. I never have, but that's never stopped me. 
the only hope is that they retain some semblance of respect for literary arts.
most of them just want to be YouTube stars. 

I had a Google Slideshow, with GIFs and everything. 
How do you say GIF? With a J or a hard G?
I use the hard G, because Jif is only peanut butter to me.
The kids didn't know who John Belushi was, no surprise.

I cried over a lake, and designed the next class. 
Looking forward to the lessons of finance and heart.
Scared of the everything, I understand. 
I guess I learned about compound interest myself as well.
