Back-to-school season can evoke specific memories. Memories of a community of people, of socialization, an avenue to network, deciding what to wear, how to get to the physical building and so on. At least this was the case before a pandemic struck this year.
Green leaves are growing back, the city is bubbling with activity, there are more jovial faces on the streets, and there is no need to layer up, because it is nice out! How about channeling all those summer vibes into a place poem or an ekphrastic poem?
