BEGINNING CLASS, THE BORDER

8 students, 7 women

Shirl, Becky, Naomi, Saradha, Traci, Bridget, Geeta, and Robert

1 African-American, 3 Asian-American (one bleach-blond) 2 Indians, 1 Irish-American (guess which), 1 Asian-Latino-American (O hyphenly days!)

We meet at the cafe. It’s reasonably quiet until a herd of drunk Broncos fans comes in. Oh the barbarians!  Secure the borders!

Miracle Swimming. It’s a miracle I can hear a thing.

They want to know, as all students do, where is this class going to take me?

Last night in my dream I came to a river. I swam across.  That’s all I know.
