Can be draining

When you have worked hard

In the morning with them

Instructing, interacting

On Wednesdays when we are all here

Joining break-out rooms expecting them

To participate in conversations

  1. It does sound great in reverse, too! Oh, now there’s another poetic form I need to try…maybe next year’s SOLSC will be nothing but poems, each one a different style. And I feel the exhaustion of Zoom teaching in your lines…and feel it in my own Meets, too.

  3. What a great slice idea, and a new structure to share! Zoom is such a perfect word for that first syllable. I’m sending you positive breakout room energy!
