Teaching Glass

Glass dancing
Buttered and slipping feet
Measured before the test snaps
Time!
He failed
She weaves waves of tangents
And tangerines
For snacks
Emotions rise and fall
He remains flat
All insides trembling glass
frequency hummed
He grimaces
smoothes out a hand
For her to grasp
Refusing to close upon her hand
He’s afraid
Of breaking her
When it’s exactly
What both need to heal
