sherku: molly

Moving and beeping
On the line
Lines so straight
Lines so worn
You do stop and watch

What is a sherku?

In honor of Molly, the automated mail cart (likely a distant cousin of HAL).

sherku: Exercise time

When the lights go out 
Roll your chair back 
Raise arms and stretch 
To get the lights back on

What is a sherku?

sherku: Knowing III

Don’t worry about
What you could have known
Go on with knowing
What you know now

sherku: Knowing II

There is comfort 
In not knowing 
Until you find out 
Something you should have known

sherku: Knowing 1

I know that
I don't know all
I need to explore
what I don't know
and should know

sherku: mist defying

backpacks swaying
ears plugged elsewhere
gather on the corner

sherku: be distinct

Take the ball 
Share something 
You have learned 
With someone 
In a way that matters
