required for graduation

easy, but not too easy.
miraculous, but not too
very miraculous.

first in, then out,
then back in focus.

the heart says, “yes;” the
mind is keeping its options
open; the body is
stuttering with
desire.

it seems we’ve known
eachother before. maybe
on some other planet or in
another lifetime. this may
seem a fantasy, but the feeling
has the heft of fine, true fiction.

you are a natural &
experienced teacher.
i am a willing &
curious student.

the only one registered.
the curriculum is life.

your schedule is open,
but call in a substitute
if you choose.

i have no patience with
essays or grading or exams;
my only qualification
is unquenchable
passion.
