First Day of School

First Day of School

Carpe Diem Special #178 Michael Dylan Welch’s “first day of school”

first day of school—
I eat my buckwheat pancakes
in silence

first day of college
longing for my parents
to hold on to me

~~~~~

first day of teaching
staring at blank faces
thinking- what next?

~~~~~

first day of preschool
my son’s backpack
weighs more him

——–

first day of school
my daughter stands defiant
refusing to sit
