I Miss

I miss the classroom
i can see
the walls lined with posters
and the uneven desks
water bottles lay forgotten
on the bench
an old pair of sneakers
filled with dust
lay strewn across the floor
the chrombooks sit unplugged
i was not there
to do my job
and let them power up
the teachers desk
is too perfect
the swivel chair creaks
with each little spin
our chairs pushed in
the SmartBoard is black
the floor cleaner
would have a hard time
cleaning all the dust
of all the times
to miss the classroom
it has to be the time
i can't go and visit it
