Not Needed

. . . No one will stop to ask,
“Where is so-and-so?” or observe
footprints never left in the snow,
the snow unshoveled, the class untaught.

You are home pouring coffee,
working silently at your table,
uncubicled . . . .

–excerpt from “Not Needed” in To Sip Darjeeling at Dawn by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2011). First published in Fourth River.
