My Favorite Teacher (poetry lesson) Part I

Barely a word



The sidewalk was still wet from the rain when I stepped out of the cab.  As I paid the fare at the open trunk, she crossed quickly behind me and the cabby said "check out those legs!".  By the time I turned I could only notice her shoulder length brunette hair as she blended into the stream of passengers filing through the doorway into the airport.
