i remember well the name of my 11th grade English

teacher---

Ms. Tominson,

who had been rumored to have given

some of her students

fellatio, during the time when she wasn’t lecturing on

Shakespeare---

perhaps it was the passion in her that

let her go wild after hours,

drinking with her teen pupils &

then sucking them dry---

but what led to her decent into

christian science,

one may never know---

it was a part of her life kept secret,

an insanity that only she knew &

when she fell down her stairs

(or so we were told),

she refused medical treatment,

lying in bed, unable to move,

hoping, no doubt,

for “the good lord’s guidance”---

but it never came,

um, pssst…..

(whispering) because “he” never does

&

she died TWO MONTHS LATER.

 

when her death was made known to us

over the loudspeaker,

in early morning home room,

those who had been rumored to have been

pleasured by her,

had conflicted feelings,

because though they still wanted blowjobs,

they were sad to see her go,

for she was, after all, a good teacher &

a fun person,

despite having been brainwashed by the

absurdity of Eddy.
