Masked in Class (HA 65 Ottava Rima)

House Arrest

A catalog of safety tips I heard
last week included rules for running schools,
prescribing masks full-time. But it occurred
to me that face expressions are the tools
we use to see if kids absorb a word
we say, or stare at us like stubborn mules.
If we can’t see the miens, we lose the means
to read the face. We’re better off with screens.
