The Glow

by Brin Manoogian-O'Dell

The glows of a dozen computer monitors stand out like fireflies in the dark classroom. The teacher’s face is the only one visible. It intrudes on the projection and then withdraws. Some hands can be seen on keyboards, furtively tapping keys. Every screen is different, distracted, a dozen different worlds. I do not like these fireflies, they show too much.
