Visiting assistant professor

Strolling towards the front of the classroom

Clear gray eyes

piercing

seeing all

adorned by lids heavy with knowledge

eyelashes impractically long

goofy smile that melted all self-erected shields

announced as the visiting assistant professor

the warmth brought upon by the professor was not to last

because for them it was only a 'visit'

but for me

it was so much more
