Kindergarten teacher

I bet she didn’t expect
that part of the job

you have to respect
their space

she tells him
but he is only five

and I can see the teacher
wish it could last
a little longer for him

the innocence
of hugging anyone
the moment
he feels like it

but she cannot
allow it

and I understand
but I still wonder
if it ever makes her cry a little
in private

the confusion
on their faces
as she erases
their belief
that their love
is always wanted.
