Behind the Classroom Door

what seems like brightness
 is a trick to bring more heat
 to this hot classroom
 
 what a way to start–
 climb on toes, on stool, on desk
 to shut those damn blinds
 
 just one sacrifice
 like the hundreds daily made
 by every teacher
 
 (and who designed these??
 thirteen-foot-high hell windows,
 bastards of the sun?)
 
 this is my Wednesday:
 rise before dawn to face light
 i’d rather not see
