Brief conversation at a Brooklyn High School Student: So, what are y'all? Colleague: well, she's a poet... Student: You're a poet? Cool. Do they pay you to do that? Me (laughing): No, they don't pay you to do that. Student: Hmm. When i grow up I want to be a serial killer. I wonder if they pay you to do that.
And you ask why I enjoy working with teenagers? ;)
