An excerpt 

The Mathematics Professor 

He stops, mid- 
Equation-jumble, mid-thought, 
Eyes staring upwards, 
Scratching his Garfunkel head 
With one end of a chalk stick, 
Releasing white dust into his 

Snow builds up on plaid shoulders, 
Even on cracked leather shoes, 
Until he jerks into action, 
Filling the green board with 
Further hieroglyphica. 

This, in the auditorium of many seats, 
For a little clump of fourth-year 
Hyperbolic experts, 
Who have grown unmoved by these 
Blizzards that come 
And go.
