My Teacher is a Witch

She doesn’t give detentions
but casts spells-
my best friend now sits
on a stool in the corner of the room
as a toad
for an unwanted remark.
Her topics include-
potions for everyday use
how to wave a magic wand
and incantations.
Her Driver’s Ed course
teaches students
how to ride a broom.
A dark cloud lingers
over her pointed hat,
and follows her
as she paces
in the front of the class room.
There’s no rain,
only a rumble of thunder
of her thoughts.
Bats flutter and swarm
like shadows
in the corner of the room
as everyone sits still
captured by her spell.
