Commence:

The last week/leg
Of a short and long
Semester.
The part where I:
Wear semi-workout clothes
Skip the makeup
Tote a warm beverage everywhere
Help you with your final paper
But likely
Just maybe
Am thinking instead
Of cookie recipes
And sugar plum fairies
And holiday concerts
And little boy nephews
And grown-up family kids too
As I answer your questions
And smile.
