To New Starts in Life: Retiring Again!

I thought going back to work would be so idyllic.

Then the virus came, and I couldn’t leave my home.

No excursions meant that my house became my workplace,

And I had went back to teaching to avoid always being alone.

No longer could I glide between the separate parts of my life,

Unable to fill the first minutes of class with trivia and laughs.

Instead, I was expected to Zoom for hours with many students

Who came to the meetings totally unprepared for our class.

There can be no feelings of triumph when speaking in a void

With individuals who look thoroughly uninterested and bored.

So, I look forward to new starts in life with excitement and fear,

And to traveling again one day soon, so my sanity can be restored.
