Avoidance

Sitting at the kitchen counter
I should be grading papers
Instead
I'm watching that sorrel horse graze
In the bottom pasture.
Coastal's greening
And a light fog covers the hills
On the horizon
Antigone and Creon, Julius Caesar and Brutus and Marc Antony, Macbeth and Duncan
They all just needed
To sit and watch a horse graze

I want papers to grade! My daughter is doing "The Outsiders" at school right now, which is what I did my unit over in one of my classes and it's killing me. Plus, all I have to watch out my window is neighbors walking their dogs.

Oh, Candance, believe me-I know I am blessed. But the end of the year gets a little crazy!
