Every Little Classroom

EVERY LITTLE CLASSROOM has its Emily. This one calls the cross “the stake.” Imagine her Lord beleaguered like that, the mythic crucifix merely vertical. She never has a thing to eat. When she finally collapses, she awakens to our worried faces. Later she’s back at her desk in her trance. She clasps her hands into a sphere. She knows the shortcuts through the fields that we don’t know.
