Deutsch 1001; Early Morning Lesson

Education via Poetry (Early Morning Lesson),

By Terry Scott Niebeling


Bright lights.

White Board.


Outside I stand with a cigarette blowing between hardly noticed and totally ignored.


Just words.

Eyes forward.


Earlier, fucking with coffee, toast, and what fruit I could afford.

Swatting flies on the side.


Stance in Preparation,

Not bored.




Struggling to stay awake.


Trying for high scores;

Sort of,

More so,

Looking to get this information absorbed.


Existing like a sponge is my new sport.




While most of these kids don’t even show up to class.


Thank you.

Thank god.

Danke schön.


Always look for more.
