our english teacher told us

as we were thinking

about our papers

on 'the stranger'

that a brilliant former student

had argued

the halfway point of the novel

marks the character's death

and in the second half

he is in hell

he was an intelligent and sensitive

teacher but i wonder if he meant

for me to see everything this way
