He reads the rules out loud
(though everyone has them on the handout)
enunciating
every syllable so clearly
that students are transfixed
as rabbits caught in headlights.

with its carefully stated objective in ALL CAPS
to discuss whether the animals
they dreamed of researching—
manticore, minotaur, megalodon—
are extinct or imaginary.
