Joel Chace - A Lesson

 She speaks the sentence.  Then, a


student at the board writes, 

In English, there are three 

to’s.  Next one, …there are

                            three too’s. 

                                                                                                             Finally,…three two’s.   

                                                                                                  Prof:  “So, 

you see it?”  Usual 


“No one?”  

Usual blankness.


                          again:  “And how about


                 ‘ I watched my mother 

   exhale for the final time.’  ‘My 

little boy looked up with his 

                                                                            sad face, and smiled.’  

‘We saw fog spread

across river flats.’”


              inscribing in notebooks.
