Articulate

By
More by this author
The teacher is a strict old man
With a pen jetting
Out of his mouth

Ruler in hand, with a pencil in his ear, he
Slaps,
Smacks,
Beats,
Whips
Against well worn desks
Teaching children to behave

His body squelches down
His sides sink in
His arms and legs retract
Articulate numbers lining the figure
With elaborate lines running down
Dwarfish and rectangular
Slapping,

Smacking,


Beating.
