In which I am silenced by the Confucian Patriarchy (a prose poem I wrote in lieu of AP World notes)

I elected to be the half-moon face of Empress Wu’s chapstick. The Small Cottage had less power and no generator, so the scholars determined that democracy was okay there. A heat wave reduced my waxy pore-craters to a waning crescent, while intellectual blue stockings rippled over goosebumped grates, and my yeast-painted lips swelled in the … Continue reading In which I am silenced by the Confucian Patriarchy (a prose poem I wrote in lieu of AP World notes)

The teachers of Gull Lake do not, as some might expect, maintain their desks as sterile surfaces for grading purposes alone. Instead, most are absolute conglomerations of high school artifacts, spilling over with a combination of decor brought from home and that accumulated from students. In any case, the contents prove interesting indications of the … Continue reading Desk Profile: Mr. Minehart reveals reasons behind his overflowing desk
