One of my students

            during group work

            during discussion time

            during sharing time

            during collaboration and discourse time

has instead been drawing elaborate and increasingly expanding fractals

on the wall hidden by a column

next to his mini-desk.

I would have noticed this much earlier

            in the semester

            if I had walked around the room

            and taken the time to go

            into the back corners

            where the international students

            and other non-group work-student inclined student sit

            some of whom can draw

            it appears

            the most elaborate fractals

            which are much more beautiful and complex

            than the off-white walls.
